Round Birthday Card


The new Card Caravan Challenge is up at The Hybrid Chick. This time aROUND, the challenge is to create a ROUND creation.  Simple, huh?

This is my entry. I created it for my husband for his birthday. So I wanted a masculine look to it. The scalloped edge may be a bit flirty, but I thought the rugged Kraft and Autumn colors helped beef up the manly-ness.

I used a digital collaborative kit by the designers at The DigiChick called Howdy Ma'am.

The card was designed in my Silhouette Software and then cut using my Cameo. I used a few different die cut shapes to create the scallop edge, the circles and the pennant pieces.


After punching holes, and inserting eyelets, I strung the pennants together with jute to create the banner. I tied knots in the ends of the jute to add to the masculine feel of the card.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy crafting!
