My first circle side step card...

I've seen a couple of these cards on the blog and thought I'd like to learn how to do that.  I ran across a template by the very talented Marlena here.  And I'm finally pretty satisfied with my results.  Would I do one again?  Probably NOT!  lol.  It's not all about the difficulty of the card (which I did have several challenges with, but I had brain freeze and couldn't decide what I wanted to do other than add the beautiful heart doilies that I purchased here from Cheery Lynn Designs.  They have some of the most awesome dies.  My next one will be one called "Wittle Wickers".  I'm sure you'll be seeing these hearts around, as well as the doily I purchased called Canadian Kaleidoscope.





For this card, I used several different dies and a punch.  The spiked circle that the image was cut out on was a Nestibility I won a few weeks ago. The pendant die in white underneath the spikey one, and the hint of black that you see peeking out from the right behind the flowers is also a Nestibility.  The large 7-1/2" circle base for the card, was cut out with Cricut, as was the sentiment.  The gems are by Recollections; the black and white flowers are from Creative Charms; the white ones are from the bridal department of Michaels.  The white heart punched border you see is actually a corner punch by MS, used on a semi-circle about 1/8" smaller than the base. The image was colored with Promarkers and the distressing was done with Colorbox cranberry pigment ink pad.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Crafts and Me Challenges - anything
Amber Crafts and Stuff - die cuts
Simon Says Stamps Challenge - girly

What a gorgeous card! It looks as if you have spent several hours on that masterpiece!
Great!!!

Linda w said...

Fantastic card, your work is always stunning. As Uli says, a masterpiece. I'm in the middle of making a circle side stepper too, using Marlene's template. My topper was too heavy though and made the stepper topple over lol. I've had to put it on another card, and back to the drawing board to decorate my side stepper. Like you, I don't think I'll be making another. I do like challenging folds but I've felt frustrated making this lol. Thanks for joining us at Amber's Crafts and Stuff's Die cut challenge this week, hope you see you back again. Hugs lin

Hi DJ -Just joined the Blog Guidebook and went to check out Julie's site at Deluxe Designs. Saw a comment that you made there and on a whim checked out your site. I love the colors that you choose for your blog and think your card here is outstanding. I'm not much of an artist but am excited to find another 'blog world' to explore. I just started my blog WynnieBee
which was going to be product review and giveaways but after learning more about all of what it takes to design a blog - I'm off buzzing around learning more about that. Which I could learn everything at once LOL! Just wanted to say hello : D
