Circle of Light

by karen @ carefree creations - Circle of Light

A couple months ago I pinned an incredible card by Nancy Penir. Without that inspiration I would never have thought to bend my string of lights around!

I originally was going to make this a one-layer card, but honestly chickened out. I figured it would be easier to waste a quarter sheet than a half (though I suppose half of the half could still be used for scrap and die-cutting).

Anyway, when it came time to mount the light panel to a card base, I struggled over what color to use. I first thought to match the yellow circle, but I used crushed curry and while I love the ink, the cardstock can be a bit overpowering. I had 3 shades of yellow and a green on my desk and still couldn’t decide. Thankfully my kiddo was able to put into words why I couldn’t decide. When I called them over to help, they immediately said, “green, because it makes the yellow pop”. Ah! Yes….when I used yellow as a background, the sentiment faded away and the light strand was the focus.

Thanks for taking a peek!
