Thinlit Circle Cards

I am obsessing about the new Circle Thinlits from Stampin' Up! This last week, I made an engagement card, anniversary card, 60th birthday card and a cupcake birthday card with them. I love the new dies! There is also a Label Thinlit die. I don't have that yet. I might just have to get one next time I shop though ;)

I thought I would share the 20th anniversary card with you today. I used some retired designer series paper on this (from Valentine's Day - how appropriate for this special couple!) and I used MORE thinlits and coordinating stamps to make the hearts. I cut my own banner since I wanted to use a bigger stamp (sadly, retired!) but there is a banner that comes with the Circle Thinlits too. Here is the front of my card:



You can make images 'kiss' inside the card with the way it spins when you open it. I love that! I thought having two touching hearts would be sweet this time:


Isn't that cute?? I thought so :) I embossed the hearts in the centre and popped them up on Stampin' Dimensionals as well. See how you can also have an overhanging banner? It doesn't get in the way of the circle opening at all.

I finished off with a bow. I seem to do that a lot.

The lettering was written in white gel pen, by hand. I had juuuust enough room to write a personal note in the middle panel. So I did. When I passed it on to the lovely couple who got it, I mean.

I'll show you more later :)

I didn't even think of that Susan. That you can "kiss" two images. Haven't even taken mine out of the packet yet. Love your lovely Love Card! hehe. Vx
