CAS Circular Thank You Card

Yuck, it was such a wet, grey, miserable day today that I needed to work with some bright and cheery colours. I decided to play with a new stamp too.

I love that Waltzingmouse Stamps make stamps that co-ordinate with Nestability dies. I bought two sets a while ago and emailed Claire to tell her how much I liked them and to ask if there were any plans for stamps that went with circle Nesties. I didn't have to wait long, they were obviously already in the pipeline LOL! I've just bought one of the circle stamp sets and have finally got round to playing with the gorgeous solid circle stamp in the set.

To carry on the circle theme, I decided to make a circular card. I scored a line 1" from the top of one of the circles and glued this to the front circle so that the card stands up. Actually, this card didn't co-operate and kept listing to one side so I needed to cut a smidge off the bottom of the back circle so that the card had a flat bit to stand up on.

I used my large Coluzzle template to cut out both 4 3/4" circles that form the card blank and the largest pink circle. I've used Bazzill Mermaid Dotted Swiss CS and SU! Pixie Pink CS. I stamped the large solid circle stamp in Aquatic Splash ink and added the sentiment in Turquoise Gem ink. This circle is popped up.

CS: SU! Pixie Pink & Whisper White, Bazzill Mermaid Dotted Swiss CS
Ink: VersaMagic Aquatic Splash & Turquoise Gem chalk inks
