Spring Swing Card

I have really been on a circle card kick lately. It's nice to change up the shape of your canvas now and then. For this card, I used the largest scalloped circle nestability die and cut out 2 circles. I lined them up and punched a 1/8th hole punch through one of the bumps. This is where I put the brad which also acts as the hinge. Next, I stamped a small floral scene using Flourishes Fantasy Floral Garden. I added in a sentiment from Many Sentiments. The finishing touch was a small piece of knotted ribbon. I got this 5/8'' grosgrain from Michaels this weekend. It's American Crafts and was on sale (woot!). For the inside of the card, I adhered a small white circle waiting to be written on.

Supplies:
Stamps: Fantasy Floral Garden, Many Sentiments by Flourishes
Ink: Cool Caribbean, Certainly Celery
Paper: Cool Caribbean, Prism Light Green, White
Accessories, etc.: American Crafts ribbon, brad, glue dot, nestabilities

  4. VERY pretty! I just made my first circle cards over the weekend. I love how they look, I just wish there was a slightly larger circle/scalloped circle in the Nestabilities nest.
