Less is More 133...Round and Round

The challenge this week at Less is More is to make a clean and simple card that uses an image that implies movement/motion...wheels or a card with moving parts as examples.  I chose a baby buggy...
 The buggy is a Papertrey Ink Polka Dot Parade #4 die, which I layered several times with white card stock underneath the polka dotted paper.  I die cut a  heart with a Simon Says Stamp Holiday Shapes (I cut apart these dies).  I die cut with a larger heart for the underneath layers to avoid imperfect positioning, the bottom layer total white with no cut outs.   I made one in blue and one in pink...
I used a sentiment from Hero Arts Baby set (I think it's retired), but if you don't have this set, you could do the same thing with the same "kind" of sentiment.  I cut apart a 4-lined sentiment from this set... 
This sentiment is on the bottom left...would probably never have used it as it was, but cut it apart,
and placed it in a semi circle  on an acrylic block around the die I used to cut the circle in my panel so when I stamped it, it would fit perfectly around the circle.  I had done this before on a set of thank you cards...a fun way to stamp a sentiment!  Stamped with versamark and white embossed...
I added some gel pen white dots at the end/in between the sentiments.  Then used the Papertrey Ink Linen/Canvas impression plate on the panel for texture.
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  10. These are both delightful Lisa and what a great idea to use the actual die as a template to get the sentiment to fit exactly!
    Brilliant!
