Center Fold Circle Card By Melin

Happy Thursday crafty friends,
I hope you are having a wonderful day so far. Before I get to my project, here is today’s Psalm 119 passage for those that are following along with me.

ק Qoph
145 I cry out with my whole heart; 
Hear me, O Lord! 
I will keep Your statutes. 
146 I cry out to You; 
Save me, and I will keep Your testimonies. 
147 I rise before the dawning of the morning, 
And cry for help; 
I hope in Your word. 
148 My eyes are awake through the night watches, 
That I may meditate on Your word. 
149 Hear my voice according to Your lovingkindness; 
O Lord, revive me according to Your justice. 
150 They draw near who follow after wickedness; 
They are far from Your law. 
151 You are near, O Lord, 
And all Your commandments are truth. 
152 Concerning Your testimonies, 
I have known of old that You have founded them forever.
Psalm 119:145-152
I hope the thought of an ever present Lord will bring you comfort and continued hope for all that you and or a loved one you know may be facing. Now for today’s project.

Here is my completed card, closed. I created this pretty card with a file from PaperCraftingWorld.com. It opens in the center.

I began with a Kraft cardstock base. I then cut the outer panels in a pink cardstock and then cut the inner panels in some beautiful paper from the DCWV Dear Jane Stack.

Here is an inside-opened view of the  card. I once again cut the outer panels in pink cardstock and then cut the inner panels with some more of that gorgeous paper. When creating the border strip for the front, I wanted to wrap it in ribbon so I had to make sure that the ribbon wrapped around both ends so that when the card was opened, it was finished on both sides.  The weight of my button helped to keep it closed, but you could put a small bit of Velcro or us a repositionable glue dot to help hold it together when closed. I left it without a sentiment at the moment as I am not sure whether it will be a birthday card or a card for a wedding my son will be attending later this summer.

This is a closer look at the pretty decorative wreath. I cut the wreath base out of kraft cardstock. I cut the tiny flowers out of white cardstock and then gently inked the edges of the petals with my Cotton Candy Ink pad. I adhered the flowers to the wreath and then used a piece of foam tape in the center to keep the cluster of three in place. I added some Petal Pink Liquid Pearls to the center of the flowers. I did also ink the edge of the white circle base and layered all of that onto a pink cardstock base.

This is a closer look at the outside of the card closed. I cut the scalloped circle frame in white cardstock. I added some pretty dew drops from Robin’s Nest. TIP:  However, they were a plain white dew drop and I wanted them to match the card a little better, so I colored them with my Copic Sketch Marker. I didn’t write down the color I used, but I think it was my R23.  It ended up matching the color of the pink perfectly. Coloring them in was a cinch. They dried very quickly and I applied a couple of coats.
