Best Friends Circle Card - Cheery Lynn Designs

This last week I have been playing with the CheeryLynn Designs, Circle Classic and Circle Scalloped Stacker Series and created this card...

I used the various circle stacker series, including the small window stacker series to create the card, building up the base of the card, and inside, with layers of circles – also using the L-4 Circle ClassicSeries to cut out the centre of the card.  The round sentiment is a free digital stamp, by Scrap-A-Licious- Times.  The XMC-5 Scalloped Window Stacker Series fits these sentiments perfectly to cut out, saving a lot of guess work!! 
 
A handy hint: remember when making round cards; if you use a scalloped circle as the base of your card, your card will stand with no issues...


To decorate, I created some open petal flowers using the Large and Medium Rose and then added foliage using the OliveBranches. The flower buds were created by cutting 3 petals from the Large Rose die cut, and rolling one up tightly, then adhering the other two petals over the top and bottom.  Just make sure you pinch tightly at the base of your newly formed bud, so you do not see the flower beneath the leaves.  To form the sheath over the flower bud, I cut a small section from the Olive Branch and adhered around the bud, looks quite affective!

 

And, don’t forget this week’s challenge on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog, ‘WinterBlues’.  Challenge details can be found by clicking ‘here’.  You have a chance of winning some great prizes – I look forwards to seeing everyone’s creations....
