Something a Little Different

 

Hi! Wow- I’m glad it’s Friday! 

I’m here with a card with a difference. I totally love 3D- I’d spend all my time creating things like this if I had the choice.

Here’s how I created it 

Using circle dies to trace around ( why not make products do double duty?!) 

Next sketch out a maze type design onto the circles regularly spaced. Use your craft knife to cut the inside and side parts of each tab  

Using the dies as a template, use an embossing tool to run along the outer edges ( the uncut ones) of each circle.

Now carefully ease them upwards   

 

 Add some patterned paper underneath and then add a raised outer ring and some flowers from the Lawn Fawn Penelope’s Blossoms set 

 

You can see some slightly dodgy folded edges- problem being that thick cardstock doesn’t really want to curve like that. It wants to be a straight edge really.

I have plans- I’d love to create this into something a little more commercial. Have a range floating around in my head! 

Well better be off- I’m hoping to avoid injury today.

Wednesday saw me stabbing myself with a needle and bleeding all over a commissionned project.

Thursday saw me being accidentally head butted by the pooch. My lip swelled and is bruised today.

Today? Well …it’s not over yet 😉.

Have any of you any craft related injuries ? x
