So I adapted the layout from an earlier card (shown below) while using most of the same materials. Both cards are nice, but I think the "after" card (above) is more vibrant with the wide red banner and lively embossing pattern.
Edited July 4, 2015 to add: See this post for another "after" version.
- See this post for materials used on both cards.
- The only new supplies on the "after" are - Added some red embroidery floss (DMC 347) and changed embossing folder to Sixxix retro cirque (retiring.)
- On the "after" card, I forgot to edge the hearts print with B39 Copic marker like the "before"card. It looks better with the edging (below.)
