Bring on the Happy Card - FabScraps Kaleidoscope Collection/ Sizzix Bigz Die - Circles

Hello Everyone

I hope your Tuesday has been good!
Since yesterday was a Public Holiday here, it sure feels like a Monday today! LOL

I have a card to share today, using the colourful and kinda retro collection from FabScraps, Kaleidoscope.

I also used the  

Sizzix Bigz Die - Circles, which were perfect for this Design! ;-)

I then also embossed these circles, with a Sizzix embossing folder, which gave them raised dots.

I heat embossed the butterflies and added my stamped sentiment.

Here are the instructions, if you would like to know how to make it! ;-)

Supplies List:
Card Kit: Kaleidescope MC83 001A
Chipboard: FabScraps KaleidoScope Die-Cut Chipboard Shape Butterflies DC83 013
Cardstock: Purple and Fuschia

  1. Cut a piece of purple cardstock, 15cm x 30,5 cm and fold in half.
  2. Cut down a piece of circle patterned paper from the card kit to fit the cardstock. Approx. 14cmx14,5cm
  3. Cut some circles from the purple and fuschia cardstock and then emboss these with the Sizzix embossing folder.
  4. Cut some of the circles down to fit within the circle patterns on the patterned paper, as per the photo.  Stick these down onto the card.
  5. Raise the 2 whole circles with double sided tape and adhere to the card.
  6. Add highlights to these circle edges with white acrylic paint, as well as all the edges of the card and patterned paper.
