SSS42 - with love (in the round)

I don't know for some reason I'm on a pink and blue creative roll this weekend. Today's card uses Close to My Heart's Day Dream Paper Packet for the Sweet Stop challenge, which is to make a circle card. You can visit the Sweet Stop by clicking on the icon over to the left.

This is my first successful circle card...and it makes me ooooh... so much more a Cricut fan. I could not have done this without my Cricut. I tried once upon a time to create a circle card...ewwwww... it was terrible, LOL. So, I thought for sure I would bag the idea and never again make a circle card. Well along comes Cricut's Wild Card Cartridge and I thought, well maybe someday if I feel so inspired....well, I guess I felt inspired to give it another go...because this time at least it looks like a card...hahahaha.

Cricut cartridge Wild card (Blackout Doily card, pg 52)
Cricut cartridge Accent Essentials (Circle using Accent1s, pg 32) - cut @ 4.5" (once with Close To My Heart's DayDream B&T duo paper, and once with CTMH's Lilac CS)
Cuttle Bug embossing folders - Bubbles & the border saying: with love
Fiskars All a-fleur Embossing Border Punch
Close to My Heart Exclusive Inks Bubblegum ink pad (Z2109)
Close to My Heart Exclusive Inks Lilac Mist ink pad (Z2133)
CTMH White Ricrac
Just Blooms Paper Flowers (Z1300)
CTMH Day Dream Paper packet (all B&T and CS colours used are in the packet)
Colonial White Brads (from the basic collection - Z1218)
Hollyhock Ribbon (from the Hollyhock collection - Z1122)
pop dots
Red gems

1. Using the Cricut Wild Card Cartridge and CTMH Blush CS, cut Doily on Blackout @ 4.75" to create the card base.
2. With the Cricut Accent Essentials cut a 4.5" circle using the CTMH B&T duo paper included in the Day Dream paper packet (I used the one with the crown and the frog on it).
3. Cut another circle this time using the CTMH Lilac CS -- then cut the circle in half or slightly less than 1/2. Emboss with the bubbles on the Cuttlebug
4. Using left over scrap about 1" x 4.5" use the Fiskars embossing border punch on the CTMH Sweet Leaf CS, glue to the straight edge of the Lilac CS
5. Glue white Ricrac ribbon to cover seem between Lilac and Sweet Leaf CS, folding excess to back to hide edges.
6. Glue set to left edge of card base (mine has fold at top, but it works with the fold at the side too)
7. Emboss with love on a small piece of CTMH CS, and cut to fit. Sponge with Bubblegum ink to make "pop" out; glue in place
8. Sponge the larger paper flower with the Lilac Mist and the smaller paper flower with the Bubblegum; insert brad into each, place on card using pop-dots.
9. Tie ribbon into a bow and place on card with pop dot (or glue dot)
10. Glue 3 red gems below the "with love"
11. Add sentiment to inside
