A feast of flowers

My challenge to myself was to cut and use a circle aperture out of a top folding card. I don't know why - just part of my never-ending quest for new shapes! 

To achieve this I measured and placed my circle die astride the central fold (although I only scored it at the edges) By careful positioning of my cutting plates I only cut half of the circle.

Another circle cut and a careful fold and the card was ready to decorate

It was an afterthought to make a little W shaped brace, which I attached to the inside front and back of the card. It ended up looking like a handbag but that was just an unintentional added bonus!

To make this card I used - 

  • Tonic Miniature Moments Best Friends 
  • Tonic Beautiful Blooms assorted flowers and leaves
  • Tonic Harrop Layering dies
  • Memory Box Pippi Butterfly outline and base
  • Creative Expressions Finishing Touches Ornamental Corners
  • Creative Expressions Finishing Touches Classic 3D Bow
This card is entered into the new Tonic challenge on Win & Tonic There are some amazing cards on there! Pop over and take a peek!

Thanks for looking!
