Aperture card

Hi Everybody,

Here is the second card to be on YouTube this week and I hope you will enjoy this simple idea using circle dies.

This is the Circle Cut Out Card  and if you click the link it will take you to the video

I have used  two dies from the  Standard Circles   to create the frame

The sentiment is from Sevenhills Crafts and  is Painted Inspirations  from Altenew. There are lots of quotes on the stamp sheet.

The ribbon is from Mei Flower and the dotty card in dark blue is from AnnaMarie Designs

The buckle to the ribbon is from a selection at Wild Orchid Crafts

This is a quick and easy card to make and one that you could keep on one side as a stand by for those unexpected request for cards

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. Morning Christina,
    A great card.

  2. Morning, Christina,
    Another delightful card! The deep blue spotty backing paper is fantastic, so rich and I love the butterfly :). I'm off to watch the video to see if it's as simple to make as you say as it looks quite precise to me...and I don't do precise lol. Have a great Thursday.

  4. Good Morning Christina :) Beautiful Card and Beautiful Video! Thank you so much. Enjoy a lovely day. It's pouring rain here and "they" say it's supposed to be that way all day.... and then, of course, everything is supposed to freeze tomorrow. Ahh well... I'll just go make another card :) Big Hugs.
