My Circle Flip Card

Hello, here as promised is the finished version!
On the front of the 'card' is a stunning image from 
Tiddly Inks and its the first time that Ive managed to ink her up; I like to keep some special things back for my daughters so here she is, I think she is just beautiful!  The front of her actual card is a super little swirly heart but I just wanted to personalise it so I hope it doesn't convene copyright rules.
You will gather from this that my gorgeous girl loves hot pink and bright orange!  If you are of a nervous disposition please look away now!  

I saw this image of a gerbera last year and I think it may even have been a blog award image - Im not sure - but I do know that Gerbera's are Laura's favourite flower so I printed a copy on glossy photo paper and layered it.  The sentiment is from QK Revolution die.
Here is a pretty little image called 'Light the Night' by Penny Black and the letters are QK Moxie font layered onto nesties.
The papers used are from the DCWV - Pocketful of Posies pad.
Here's the aerial shot!  lol!
I wont bore you with shots of every side, I like you too much for that!
This is the first time Ive decorated one and I look forward to having another play at what else I could use to adorn it but that wont be until Ive finished another one for my other daughter, in her colourway!
Thanks for calling in!

ETA: This idea came from the Whiff of Joy Inspiration Blog.  Sadly I dont have anything to assist me in cutting out 6" circles so I had to use my protractor and sharp scissors!  It took 4 circles of card then 4 circles of pp all hand drawn and cut!  There are some very wonky lines!!  lol!

Keryn, this is absolutely lovely. I love the colours you've used for your project.

I made one of these "books" the Christmas before last when I did a GD spot for Charmed Cards & Craft - I had such fun with it and now you've made me think about making another one

Larisa said...

Лукнn, thanks for link. It works as well ))) Maybe I'll make the same 'circle flip book' soon ))) Thank you!
One more Hugs. Larisa.

That's a clever little flip book - would be good to make in school with little ones for Mother's day with little pics on each face - love it!! (Sorry - went off into teacher mode there - habit of a lifetime!!)

Beautiful work. You made me want to try one so I tracked down the tutorial (thank you). I also want to thank you in describing how you used a protractor. I too don't have large enough cutting circles. Thank you.

Big hugs,

Beth
