QQ Birthday Blog Hop

Good morning crafty friends,

Today’s post is the card that I’ve provided to my Quick Quotes design team for the Design Team Birthday Blog Hop 7/30-7/31.
I’m sure you’re all familiar with a standard blog hop - a long list of blogs, and you hop from one to the other leaving comments...
Well, this one has a twist. This should be a super efficient hop for you, the hopper...
We’re linking up design team blogs instead of the individual bloggers blogs... So you only have to make 8 hops, and you’ll get to see 57 cards!

Here is my card.

I used the wonderful Mary’s Garden Designer Paper from Quick Quotes. I created the digital stamp and it is available HERE.

This is the inside of the card. I used my Cricut to cut the scallops and the circles. I inked the edges of the circles with the Bloody Mary  Powder Puff chalk ink.

Here is a close up of the vellum quote I used. I wanted to show you that you can adhere the vellum quote to the patterned paper without showing the adhesive. I simply used a thin line adhesive and followed the lettering in the back.
