This card is a design that was given to us at the SU! Regional training I went to back in September. I just love so many elements of it:
- the interlocking circles and how they frame the cute circus image;
- the ruffled ribbon down either edge of the panels; and
- the “doors” opening onto the card
I so wish that I’d thought it up but I’m quite happy to case it.

The card base was created as a gatefold and each side of the card front was run through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots folder. Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon was adhered behind panels of Daffodil Delight card that had matching brads inserted near the base before adhering them direct to either side of the card opeining. The dancing bear image was stamped with Black Stazon onto Whisper White card and coloured using the Blender Pen and inks before punching out with the 1-3/4″ Circle. This was attached to one side of the card front. A scallop circle was die cut from Lucky Limeade card with the Perfect Pennants die and the centre punched out with the 1-3/4″ Circle. A banner was created in Whisper White card and stamped with the sentiment. These were adhered to the opposite side of the card front. Linen Thread ties the doors closed in a little bow.
This is how the interlocking circle frames open out:
Tomorrow I’m meeting up with some of my fellow SU! demos, some from within my own team and some from outside (it’s such a sharing network – just one of the things I love). We’re creating sample books so that our customers will be able to see all the SU products in real life – it makes such a difference when you can feel the textures and see the intensity of colour.
… and of course we’ll be swapping and so I’m off now to get to my swaps finished
Have a great weekend.
