When I saw that Gina K.’s Design Team blog hop was all about favorite StampTV episodes this month, I jumped at the chance to finally try this idea of Cropped Circles. I’ve been wanting to use this technique on a card for a long time.
I used the sailboat image from the Enjoy the Sunshine stamp set to make a wedding anniversary card for my parents. In the Dutch language, we have an expression for getting married (in het huwelijksbootje stappen) that literally translates to “getting into a wedding boat.” My parents have (figuratively) been sailing around in their boat for 49 years!
Thanks for stopping by!
