Circle Card

This is an idea that I lifted from a papercraft magazine...

I used an old CD as a template for the circle shape... Its the perfect size...


Recipe:
Card.. Regal Rose, Rose Red, Pale Plum, small piece of Designer Paper in Close to Cocoa.
Ink... Close to Cocoa, Pink Passion, Pretty in Pink.
Stamps... Pick a Petal, Cheer & Wishes.

I used the Pick a Petal stamps on different coloured card with different inks to get a randon effect, cut out the petals and highlighted with some glitter.
The edge of the main card was decorated with circles punched with the 1 3/8" circle punch which were 'stressed' by rubbing the Close to Cocoa ink pad over them. I used the same aging technique around the edge of the main card and the Close to Cocoa Designer Paper.
After assembling I used the Cheer & Wishes stamps... The 'Happy' is actually the 'Happy Anniversary' stamp and the 'Birthday' is from the 'Birthday Cheer & Wishes' stamp. I used a post-it note to mask the parts of the stamp I didn't want inked and used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to position the words.

After gluing the circles on the 'spine' of the card I realised it was then difficult to open so I made a couple of cuts in the circles. This allows the card to lay flat open and you don't even notice the cuts!!
Have a try at making some different shaped cards and please feel free to leave a comment & let me know what you think...
Enjoy,
Thanks for looking...
