My friend, Sue Farrant, had a wonderful post and samples using these new Carousel Notes from the Occasions Mini Catalogue so I thought I would play with them too. You get 12 cards, 4 each of Groovy Guava, Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi. They measure 6 1/4" x 6 1/4" round and include Chocolate Chip envelopes.
I used the Wild Wasabi note and added dry embossed "dots" to each petal with the Pick a Petal Classy Brass template. The Pick a Petal fits perfectly on the Carousel Note so it makes placement of the "dots" so easy. Then I used the same Brass template to add the punched holes all around the inside of the note.
Next, using the Colluzle cutting system, I cut a circle to fit the centre of the note.
I love the new Sticky Cut Letters in the Spring Summer Collection 2008 – you just peel off the backing and stick it onto your project. Then you carefully peel off the front paper to reveal the VERY sticky surface. Then you can add beads, glitter or as I did in this case, the Chunky glitter. So easy and so fun. Then I add the "Happy Birthday" from the It’s Your Birthday stamp set. I inked up the word "Happy" and then used the stamp-a-ma-jig to line up where I wanted to stamp it. Then repeated the process with the word "Birthday".
Lastly, I used the Pick a Petal Brass template to add the raised dry embossed flower.
