Ringmaster of My Heart

Happy Friday! It's Jeanne today and I have another Valentine's card for you.  However, this would also be wonderful for an anniversary or just an "I love you" card.  I adore the new release of Circus dies; they make for some really fun cards!  And they are on sale right now for a limited time!

I started by cutting my Ringmaster from white cardstock and coloring the face, hands and hair with Distress Oxide inks.

For his suit, hat, megaphone and staff, I used various colors of cardstock including gold foil for the top of his staff.

 I assembled the Ringmaster.

I used a stencil and Daffodil Delight ink to create a background.  I wanted a burst and although this is a sun burst I knew the sun would get covered up.

Using the largest of the Wacky Stitched Oval Dies I cut an oval from my stenciled background. I also cut an A2 panel from Poppy Parade (a red-orange color) and a white panel 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches.

Before adhering the white panel to the red I used a corner punch to give some visual interest to the panel.

Next I heat embossed my sentiment in white and created a banner by fishtailing the ends of the strip.

I assembled all the elements on the card.  With its bright colors and fun theme this makes for a very happy card!

Thanks for visiting today!  I hope you have a fun and creative weekend!
