About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

CCM&M Challenge 49 - Circular Cards

Afternoon!! Today's post for Crafty Cardmakers and More is a very sad one as it is my last as part of the Design Team as I have decided to step down. I have had almost 4 wonderful years as part of this team - the first I ever joined!! A big thank you to Lin for giving me the opportunity to be part of such a fantastic group. I'm sure I'll be popping back to take part in the occasional challenge!! 

Anyway, the theme for the fortnight is Circular Cards - and the lovely Kim is hosting. Be sure to check out the rest of the inspiration from the DT on the Crafty Cardmakers and More blog.  

I started with a Craftwork Cards Circular Easel Card - but it was still too rectangular, so I used my Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Circle dies to make all parts circular.
The cake topper and "Congratulations" sentiment are from an old Kanban set - as are the papers. I've added in a bit of blue and cream Bazzill card too. I used ribbon and pearl flowers to embellish.

Will be back very soon!!
