Twirly Circle Friendship Card

Hello, crafty Dies R Us fans! Leslie here from Love To Scrap 2 and I’m delighted to be back on the blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a pretty friendship card featuring the absolutely gorgeous paper-pieced Memory Box Twirly Circle die! Paper piecing is very relaxing for me and it sure yields a nice result!

Okay, so let's get started!

1. Using the Memory Box Twirly Circle die, cut the focal element once from dark purple cardstock and discard all the small pieces, keeping just the center circle for embellishing the inside panel and the frame which will be the base of the focal element on the front. 

2. Die cut a second twirly circle from light purple patterned paper and a third one from medium purple cardstock, retaining the innermost circle of pieces on the patterned paper one and the outermost circle of pieces on the medium colored cardstock one. The use of washi tape on the back side holds the pieces where they belong.

3. Cut a square top-folding card base from white cardstock along with front and inside layering panels and one narrow embellishing strip for the inside from dark purple cardstock, a front layering panel and inside embellishing strip from yellow gingham patterned paper, and an inside layering panel from white cardstock.

4. Adhere the yellow gingham layering panel to the dark purple layer to create the front panel. Adhere the dark purple twirly circle frame to the front panel, and then place all the small pieces retained from the other two die cuts into the negative spaces on the frame using the Crystal Katana Pick-Up & Glue Tool. This tool is a lifesaver when working with a lot of small pieces and makes the process go much faster! Next, adhere the yellow gingham and narrow dark purple strips to the white cardstock panel and then adhere that panel to the other dark purple layer to create the inside panel. 

5. Add the sentiment strip to the front panel, and then add the retained circle from the dark purple die cut and a sentiment to the inside panel. 

6. Adhere the panels to the front and inside of the card base, and add a little bit of bling to the front panel for some interest. Now your pretty paper-pieced card is complete! ;)
