CAS-ual Firday's Round and Round


I have a card for this week’s CAS-ual Friday's Challenge, Round and Round. You have to use 2 circles on your card, i used 2 ovals.... ovals are technically circles.. right?!?! hehe! Anyway when i saw the challenge i thought of the Happy Hydrangea set and knew it had an oval stamp and matching die and though i could come up with something!


First i made my card base, then i tested my idea on scrap paper and when i had it down, i did it again on my cardbase. I die cut the oval from thin paper twice to use as masks. I stamped the front oval first then using a die cut oval masked it and stamped the flower image.

Next using masking i stamp the next oval, so it would be behind the first. Then using both die cuts i masked both ovals and stamped the individual flowers in the second oval.

Then i stamped the sentiment and last added a twine bow and tiny amounts of glitter glue to the hydrangea.

Hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday weekend!! Happy 4th!!
