DieCember | Circle Border

Hello there, last week Simon Says Stamp kindly sent me some of their new dies for their DieCember release to play with. Well, I just love dies so thank you so much SSS! :) As soon as I saw this Mod Circle Frame I knew straight away that I wanted to die cut inlay with it. I also thought the design would be great for those dreaded male cards that I struggle to make.

I first took the die and run it through my Cuttlebug using PTI Stampers Select White, Bazzill Card Shoppe Gumball, Robin's Egg and Whirlypop cardstocks. I then took a piece of printer paper and adhered the frame on to it first. I then inlayed the different colours into the circles and background type pieces.

For the sentiment I took the new Clearly Besotted Many Mini Messages set and stamped this on to one of the white pieces. I then took three other layers of the shape and layered them together with the white on top to give it some more dimension. This panel was then adhered to a white A2 card base and I have embellished with some Doodlebug Sprinkles.


Thank you so much for visiting me today. I hope you are all well. I am full on Christmas prep/present buying mode at the moment. Most years I leave getting my Christmas presents until late but this year I have done really well and managed to get most of them already. Oh the joys of online shopping! :D Have a great rest of your weekend!
