Circle Hello card

Hi everyone!!  It's been a long while since I've made a circle card, so I thought it was time to bust out my circle dies and make a friendship card.  The scale of the Flower Power 2 flowers are perfect for the card front.
I thought this happy colorful paper from My Mind's Eye would make the perfect backdrop for a friendship card.  The words are too cute!  I added a bit of washi tape across (it is the diagonal piece) and added some rhinestones for extra bling.
 
I often get asked how I make circle card bases and thought I would include a visual on how I make them.  There are a couple of ways to do this, but I find it easier to die cut 2 circles, score a line across the top of one circle -this circle will become the back of the card.  Then I fold it down and glue it to the top of the second circle.
Here is a side/back view
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  Here is a close up of the die cut details.

  2. Beautiful work Michelle! That is exactly how I make my circle cards. I have been having fun playing along with the Dare To Get Dirty challenges with some of the items you sent my way. I particularly like the mint Chapstick. Thanks again!
