Clean and Simple Cards with Blooming Floral Circle Frame
by Anne Thompson

Maybe you'll recognize this first card from the introduction to this month's challenge.

I chose to feature one die on a series of clean and simple cards for each season: BLOOMING FLORAL CIRCLE FRAME 94218.  

For this spring card, I used an aqua notecard, white cardstock cut with the Blooming Floral Circle Frame, cloud paper cut with one of the Wrapped Circle dies just a tad bigger than the floral circle as an underlay, and a scrap of pool distressed dot paper cut with a small circle die the same diameter as the inner circle of the frame.  I stamped "springtime wishes" from
SPRINGTIME TYPEWRITER SENTIMENTS CL5239 using Hero Arts Tide Pool ink on a scrap of white cardstock.  I layered everything up using a glue pen, tucking the sentiment under one of the branches and adding the small cut-outs on the end of that tag.

Here I covered the front of a pink notecard with plaid paper, added the white cardstock Blooming Floral Circle Frame, and glued on a bow and a few small pearls.  Summer card!

Here I've added fall and winter cards with the summer one.

For the oranges fall card (which I made as a birthday card with a sentiment from Bold Friendly Greetings CL5236), I used a gold cardstock and a darker orange one for the circle frames and layered them just a bit offset before adding the ribbon bow.  The winter dark chocolate card has a white cardstock circle frame over a kraft circle die cut to the same size and finished with a brown ribbon bow. 

I'm now thinking of other color combinations and celebrations appropriate for this design.  So many possibilities!

I also added coordinating papers to the inside panels of each card and also on the back--trying to use up some of the pretty papers from my 6X6 collections and scraps from previous projects.  

Happy Crafting!
