Fringing, fringing, more fringing!

Oh my, the start of another week - it's scary how fast time is passing by!   This card was a bit of a departure from the usual stamped one.

Bermuda Bay is such a rich, vibrant colour - I love it!  Having used pastel In Colors of late, it's refreshing to make something out of the Brights Collection!

I cut strips of Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo cardstock and broke up the fibres with a bone folder before attacking it with the fringing scissors, leaving approximately 3/8" uncut band at the base.   I then ran a piece of sticky strip along the uncut band, removed the sticky strip and used a non-stick pair of scissors to cut in between the fringe at 1/4" intervals (this makes it easier to manipulate the strip into a circle shape).   I punched out a 1-3/8" circle to use as a base and adhered fringed cardstock using the circle as a guide and repeated with the Melon Mambo middle layer, followed by another Bermuda Bay layer.

For the flower centre I used the pansy flower punch, petite petal and itty bitty punches.  The tags were cut from the Banners Framelits dies.  I used Happy Watercolor stamp set for my label and kept it clean and simple.

Hope you like it.
