Everlasting Circles

Good Morning All
Thank you for visiting 
Today is dreary, so a great excuse for crafting. I really must make birthday cards for my OH and SIL for next weekend!
I was so excited to win a set of Sue's dies and my favourite concept too I'm still doing a happy dance and may even go to Salsa tonight!
Michele - yes feel free to use Thursday's idea I'd be flattered

Well done to Jackie and Brenda too

Today's card was easy. I amazed myself at how relatively easy it was to line up the Striplet to make a continuous background and I just had to buy that Happy Birthday die after seeing Hazel's (I think it was Hazel) creation on her or Sandra's blog I can't back track and find it to do a link! I gilded the piece of card before I cut out Happy Birthday

I'll do other versions of this in more delicate colours and bling it with a few flowers or a butterfly. What do you think

  1. Hi Karen - first of all a BIG congrats on winning SW dies - not surprised you are doing a 'happy dance' love your card and love the gilding flakes -once I dared to use them I was away as I love the effect it creates and like you think this is probably my favourite Striplet die as you can quite easily create a background with it so a bit more versatile xx enjoy your weekend & salsa if you go xx GailT xx

  2. Hii Karen,
    I like this card, and the design is just perfect for men, and with a bit of girly frou frou it's be ideal for the girls.

  7. Good morning Karen love what you have done here and seems relatively easy to make a stand by batch of cards. Best wishes Jackie xx

  8. Great design Karen. I'm just thinking how many looks you could get from this with a colour change. It's a really good "go to" starting point

  9. Hi Karen
    Yes, it was a treat seeing yours and Jackie's name on Sue's list. Enjoy your prize!
    Love what you have done with this card. The die cut going into the embossing is a great idea. Haven't used my gilding flakes for an age so perhaps I should get em out.
    Best wishes.
