Here are the products that I used for this card...
Cuttlebug Leafy Branch Embossing Folder & Small Circle Die (approximately 1 1/4 inch)
Papers, Stamp & rub-ons are all from the Imaginisce Twitterpated collection.
Font...Sizzix Wingo Zingo alphabet
Chalk Ink..Color Box Blush Rose, Ice Blue & Ice Jade
Following is a brief explanation of how I put this card together...it's actually really easy to do. First of all, I started with a white card base 5 1/2 inches square. I used a bowl to trace a circle, but leaving about 2 1/4 inches in tact at the top of the card. I then cut the same circle out of the dark peach cardstock and embossed it with the Cuttlebug Leafy Branch Embossing folder. The next step is to cut your circles, ink if desired and place them around the edge of your white card circle, overhanging by approximately 3/8 of an inch.
The next step is to cut a strip of patterned paper 5 1/2 inches long by 2 inches wide. Adhere to the embossed dark peach cardstock. Adhere this to the base card, trim the edges to match the curve of the card and ink edges, if desired. It should now look like this :)
Next, I applied the rub-ons over edges of the patterned paper. Punch a 2 ¾ inch circle from white cardstock and ink edges with Ice Blue chalk ink. Adhere to right side of card on the patterned paper. Punch a scallop out of patterned paper. Stamp the bird using Stazon Black Ink and fill in using colored pencils. Adhere to the white circle using the foam squares. Using the Wingo Zingo Sizzix alphabet, cut out title from black cardstock and adhere to card front.
