I had to resort to the latter, and I die-cut the circle trio you see here:
As I began to assemble my card, I realized this shape is exactly 5 1/2" tall, so it really didn't work on an A2-sized card. I was forced -- FORCED, I TELL YOU -- to make a 5x7 card instead. I know Marianne (aka: Ruffhaven, aka: BR #2) is very proud of me at this moment.
I thought it would be fun to put a playful kitty in the openings, so I die-cut the shape again out of white and stamped one of the kitties from the Paper Smooches Nine Lives set onto the circles with black ink. The eyes and noses were colored with ultra-fine-tip Sharpies.
Before I stuck everything down to the card, I needed a horizontal element, so guess what? Washi tape to the rescue! :) Then I glued everything down, added a sentiment and called it finished.
So, do you have some chipboard lingering in your stash? Got a collection of cardboard you need to justify keeping? Dig it out and come play along with us at SOS this week!
Thanks for stopping by!
