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...

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...
Thanks for looking...
