Cards in Envy Challenge: Framed with Circles

Happy Monday!  It’s time for a new Cards in Envy Challenge.  This week, we are looking for cards that are “Framed with Circles”.  Your circles can be stamped, die cut, drawn, or paper pieced, but please add some circles on your card and make sure it fits into an A2 sized envelope.  The challenge will run through Sunday, December 31st and our design team will be choosing their favorite cards to feature on The Cards in Envy blog.

For my card today I used Lawn Fawns “Snow Day” stamp set.  To make the circle frame, I started with a piece of the pattern paper from the Peace, Love and Joy paper pack and chose a Hero Arts Circle infinity die larger than my design paper, creating a “frame”.  Once the circle was cut out, it created two pieces that I adhered to my card front. I then took two smaller circle dies taped together onto some red design paper and cut those out which created another frame.  I die cut a final circle with green cardstock.  For my focal image, I stamped the heart in red and added snowflakes in white.  I finished off with a bow and a sentiment from the same set.

I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with this week for your “Framed in Circles” card for the Cards in Envy Challenge!
