Crafty Cardmakers and More Challenge 149

This time, at Crafty Cardmakers and More, we're challenging you to go round and make a circular card!



Knowing this challenge was coming up and having wanted to get some large circle dies for a while, I splashed out on the Presscut set at Ally Pally recently. They were on my 'shopping list'. Not on my 'shopping list' was the set of Celtic circles from Tonic, but once I'd seen them, they magically fell into my basket. I love that the patterns can be cut out of solid card, or cut into rings - it just gives so many more options. For this challenge, I decided to use all but the largest parts of the set. I started with a 7 by 7in card and cut it using one of the Presscut dies. Then I added layers in various shades of turquoise, and finished with some flowers which I made using dies from Sizzix and Crealies. Very simple, but quite effective, I think.

I hope you can join us this time.

I love what you have done with your circle dies Josephine. It's quite scary what falls into your basket at a show isn't it. Perhaps it's a good job I haven't been to one in a while lol.
