Pink Lacy Circles Card

Lacy pink circles and scallops. Warming up for Valentine's cards that will need to be shipped by Christmas. Working months ahead for Operation Write Home!

The layered circle is made with six punches, as follows:
  • Bottom circle - 2-1/4" plain circle - PaperTrey Ink hibiscus burst (medium pink)
  • Lacy circle - 2" scalloped circle with 1/4" hole punch in each scallop - PaperTrey Ink sweet blush (light pink)
  • Small scalloped circle - 1-1/4" - hibiscus burst
  • Heart - 1" - PaperTrey Ink raspberry fizz (dark pink)
  • Flower - 1/2" flower punch with 1/4" hole punch in center - sweet blush
The ribbon is 5/8" white sheer-and-satin, colored with Copic marker R000. The card base is sweet blush. The horizontal layer is raspberry fizz. The sentiment "love you..." is computer-printed with dark pink ink in Zapfino font.

Created for Operation Write Home, "supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them." (105)
