Floral Circles

Hi there. I have a CAS card to share today, which actually took quite a bit of sorting out – where to place the circles, do I layer them on top of anything? How on earth do I stick down the little pieces themselves?

I came up with this:

And then I came up with this with the negative pieces:

I’m not sure I like the strip of embossed card under the circles, but I had already stuck it down – which is why I went with fiddling with the negative pieces to create the second card – thank goodness I had saved them to one side and not binned them straight away!

I used a couple of images from the Pink fresh Studio die set, and cut them out after I had coloured an area for each circle with a red, orange, and purple Copic.

The first card is sticking those main die-cuts onto a circle stitched piece of card before putting together as you see. I toyed with the idea of putting the circles on the left side, then the right side, and decided the middle was the best way to show-case these die cuts.

The second card was a little more taxing……

I cut the images again out of white card, then stuck that onto the circles, then inlaid all the coloured piece from the first card.

But – can you see the little itty bitty piece on the red leaf? Well – that went walk-about. That little bitty piece flew away – goodness knows where to…. I was tempted to colour that little hole with the red marker – but I would have totally messed it up! So I left it as it was – did you notice before I told you? Hmmmm….

For a sentiment – I decided not to put one on the front of the card. I am making cards currently for ‘just because’ reasons, just to send out, for no particular occasion – just so I can write a little note to pop inside – that’s when I’m not creating cards for DT challenges anyway…..

I shall be entering the following challenges:
