The August card is simple red and black. Now, I don't edit my photos. I just take them with my iPhone and upload as is. Basically, if I don't like it I take another. I point this out because the red in the picture is MUCH brighter than what is actually on the card. Oh well.
I liked the "tag" concept and made my own - cut rectangles, and the use a corner rounder for the top. My crop-a-dile punched the perfect holes to attach my string. The string is glued down to the card; it doesn't really go anywhere. Little tiny bling stickers accented the sentiment "Think of You" and the date.
This was inspired by a pin on Pinterest. I liked the color scheme and swirls.
For the card center, I traced an ink box and cut the shape out. A plain rectangle was just too boring. The stamp on the center and the border is from the Stampin' Up! baroque motifs set...possibly my favorite stamp ever. I hand cut the petals for the flower, drew the stem, attached and accented with a little bling. There you go, a card for September!
