Circles, Circles...

...and more circles.

When I saw this challenge, I knew that I wanted to create a male card by using Circle Circus.  Then to top it off, I found some DSP that would match perfectly with the stamp set & sketch.  I will admit I am very happy with the way it turned out.  Got to love it when that happens!

Base Card - Baja Breeze Cardstock - Cut, score & fold
Layer 1 - Very Vanilla Cardstock - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8" or 14cm x 10cm
Layer 2 - DSP - 2 1/2" x 3 7/8" or 6,5cm x 10cm

Stamp sentiment bottom RHS of Very Vanilla Cardstock in Soft Suede Ink.  With my Bigshot, Embossing Folder - Perfect Polka Dots & the bottom half of Very Vanilla Cardstock, I run the Cardstock through the Bigshot.  I then asdhered the DSP to the top half of Very Vanilla and adhered to the base card.

Again with the Bigshot, I cut an oval in Soft Suede Cardstock using the Ovals Dies.  I also cut a smaller one in Very Vanilla.  I grabbed my stamp set, Soft Suede and Baja Breeze Inks and the Very Vanilla Oval and proceeded to stamp.  I adhered this oval to the Soft Suede Oval & then adhered to the card base.

All in all a very easy card, but none the less a very nice one!

Cardstock - Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze, Soft Suede

This is certainly a very masculine card. Love the way it has come together. Wish I had Circle Circus - just another to add to the wish list. Thanks for sharing.
