Off we go!

I have seen so many cute cards made with our new White Daisy Circle Spin Cards but hadn’t had a chance to play with them myself. I finally got my chance! I was going to try to use a non-traditional paper pack, but in the end I decided that I really needed to use Frosted. I love how there is a coordinating snowflake on the new Artbooking cartridge!

This is really a pretty basic and simple card, but I think it turned out beautifully. I cut the piece for the front, attached it with a tiny bit of repositionable adhesive, and then opened up the card and traced the cut-out so it would be placed perfectly. I cut it out by lining up the pencil lines with the wire on my trimmer and got a perfect square which I then flipped over and attached to the inside of the card. I also added a sentiment to it.

To finish off the rest of the card I cut out circles of cardstock to cover the white spinner circle, attached them, and then cut out the matching snowflake on my Cricut. I stamped “Joy” in Twilight ink, cut around it, and then attached it with 3-D Foam Tape on top of one of the snowflakes. Lastly I applied one more snowflake, added a few Sparkles, and that was it!
