One of the most fun weekends I have ever had without my sweet husband was at Circle Mania last September! Sadly, I have to miss the one going on this weekend, but I sent along a door prize-- and made a card to go with it so I could be there in spirit!
Lately, I have been playing with the figures on the Cricut cartridges again. This card features the French woman from Summer Celebrations, tweaked a bit to look less French and more Circlet-y. She was cut at 5" on my Expression. I hand-cut to remove her beret and add locks of hair. I added a nose and a skirt. I cut an extra sleeve to pop up and cut off her arm that is furthest away and reapplied it with pop dots to give her even more dimension. I put a Circle logo in her hand. (This one is from Sandy's Circle event in Louisville when Provo Craft sponsored our crops and meetups-- part of the confetti on the tables. Yes, I kept everything!) Her earring is cut from metallic paper and I added a little ink to her cheeks, hands, arms, and decolletage.
|Her dimension is from the attachment of her arms with pop dots and locks of hair added and popped up.|
The figure is adhered to the card with 1/4" pop dots. I used my Circle embossing folder for the background mat and layered it over the other mat and card. I adhered a gift card inside and added a message using my computer's printer.
I am so sad that I will be missing this event and so happy for my friends who are able to go! This is a photo from the last (and first!) Circle Mania. I am in there somewhere!
