Birthday Circles Card

Today, I have a fairly quick card to create with Spellbinders™  Splendid Circles

The three larger circles were cut and embossed all at one time by nesting the die templates together.  I sanded the paper lightly to highlight the embossed areas.  These circles have such great detail!  They're one of my favorites!
The card front was embossed with a new Spellbinders M-Bossabilitites embossing folder.  This pattern is called Elite.  The great thing about these folders is that they emboss 2 different patterns depending on how the folder is folded!  You can see all the different folders on  the Spellbinders website.

To assemble the card, I fastened the circles together with 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.  Then I wrapped a short piece of the ribbon around the circles and fastened it together on the back.  I tied a separate bow and attached it to circles with a Glue Dot.  Much easier than trying to wrap the ribbon around the circles and then tie the bow!!!

I cut the narrow flag from Spellbinders Nautical Frame and Accents from white card stock.  Then I stamped the birthday verse on it in black ink.  I tied it to the bow with cord.   Finally all is mounted on the card front with 3D Foam Squares under the ribbon and under the verse.
Pretty easy, huh?

For a different look, the Splendid Circles could easily be cut from multiple colors of paper.   Cut 3 sets and mix and match to make 3 coordinating cards!

Happy Creating!
