An 18th Birthday card....with stand.

 Good Morning all, thank-you for your birthday wishes from yesterday. I had a lovely day.
Today's card is inspired from some new dies by "Crealies" they are called patchwork dies and have circle, square and octagon in shape.

I have just ordered the octagon shaped ones and look forward to creating cards when they arrive.

However, when I looked at the design of the circle one, I thought I could achieve the same look without the die, just by using my circle dies and cutting them in the same way. So I created a circle card as my base. Then I cut 3 circles of decreasing sizes. The largest one was the easiest to cut as I could decided myself, where I wanted the divisions. The other two circles were slightly more complicated, in that I had to make sure I cut them in the right place to work out right. Once cut, it was just a case of layering up and then decorating. I had this swirl peel off in peach and pale blue, which just draped across the largest segment perfectly.

 I have added candi in pale blue and wording in peach mirri card.

It will be for my niece's 18th birthday which is in August.
Have a good week, thanks for stopping by and come again soon. x
