I saw a telescoping circles card a while ago and made a mental note to try one out. They're great fun and easy to put together too! If you'd like to have a go there is a video tutorial here on Barb's blog. I wanted to send a thank you card to Sharon, the sweet lady that let me use her USA address for some eBay.com purchases. I used one of my eBay sets, Flower Fancy, and got to work with circles to make a telescoping card for Sharon. I chose a cheery colour combo of Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette and Wild Wasabi.
Here's the telescoping circles card closed.
Here's circle 2 revealed.
And here's the card fully opened out. The third circle is where I wrote my message.
I then stamped some flowers and leaves on the front of the envelope. I do love two-step stamping sets and this Flower Fancy set is definitely a fave!
