A daily papercrafting blog which features my handmade cards showcasing Creative Expression's products including my own line of cutting dies and embossing folders, Cosmic Shimmer, Ranger, Spellbinders and more which use various techniques and ideas to hopefully inspire the creativity in you.
Good Sunday morning all! I debated on whether to post this card for a good while, but then I thought it might be useful to explain what this card started out to be and it might make more sense. Originally I planned to make this card so that the centre of it would spin around, so I first created the multi layer frames using the Double Pierced Noble Squares (both original and Set B). I cut the Triple Line Happy Birthday and black and glued one strip around the edge of the frame so that it could be read from any way you turned it! I used some of the paper from my Classic Elegance Paper Pad for the backing of the frame. I switched to the Double Pierced Noble Circles to create the base for my focal element in black and white. I cut the Gillian die in white and backed it with the same paper from the background of the frame. I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the smallest die in the Noble Circle set. The problem came when I couldn't locate a long enough brad to use for the mechanism to make the centre sentiment spin around so I ended up just putting it together with mounting foam for a stationery card. I would have flipped the top sentiment on the frame so it could be read right ways around had I known, but it had already been glued in place. Murphy's law, huh! The funny thing is that I recently found the brads that I knew I had, but couldn't find at the time! I completed the card with white and black mats and layers. The finished dimensions are 8 1/4" x 8 1/4" in size.
