Full Circle New Year

This incredible idea is from the fabulous Norma at From My Craft Room!  She is a fabulous crafter with some awesome ideas so check out her site for some great inspiration.

This is a circle easel card with a hidden panel in the bottom.  Norma's instructions are easy to follow so don't be afraid to give this a try. I am entering this one in TOMIC (The Official Magnolia Ink Challenge) and in the Color Me Creative Classroom and also in the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge.

The TOMIC Challenge this week is New Years and the 7 Kids College Fund is New Year Hopes and Dreams.  Color Me Creative is gold/cream and white.  The Color Me Creative site has some really cool pictures up for inspiration so again, check them out.

Tilda was colored with E51, 50, 000 for her dress; E33, 35, 53, 51, 50 for her hair and I also added some Prismacolor Pencil in Goldenrod; E21, 00, 000, 000 for her skin and her star was Smooch in Gold Lame.  I think the star stick was E33, 35 and 31.

The flowers were sponged with Brilliance Ink in Galaxy Gold.  All of the circles are Spellbinders dies.

The Happy New Year phrase was done with Distress Inks and Perfect Pearls and the inside phrases are embossed with gold embossing powder.

One more of the secret hidden panel in the base.  I just love the idea of "secret compartments" in a card!!

I would love to hear what you think of this one and once again, wish me luck on the challenges.

  4. I still haven't made an easel card, must add that to my to do list. Your card is lovely, especially the way you've done it as an easel and I love how you've placed all of the flowers on the front too. Thanks so much for joining in the fun with us over at Color Me Creative!! Happy New Year!
