Karen Burniston's March 2016 Designer Challenge, Card #2

Good morning friends

Today's share is my second card for the March 2016 Designer Challenge, and I made a Double Pull Birthday Card using one of my favourite dies the Spiral Circle Pull Card. Karen Burniston challenged the Designer Challenge Team to "Pull It".

The card has a belly band to hold it closed, as with all the foam tape I used inside it's quite bulky. The belly band works perfectly, and gave me a chance to do a little more embellishing on the front.

I used the flowers from Props 7- it cuts 4 at a time so it's fast and easy to cut multiples. Glitter dots were added to the centres and I used the Ring Accordion Frame Edges as little banners across the front of the card.

Here is a peek at the inside of the card as it opens ...

The Cake from the Cake Pop Up decorates the inside of the left panel, and the green circles are embossed with the Trendy Tiles embossing folder. I did trim a little off the sides of the cake stand so I would fit on the left circle without showing through to the front.

The right inside circle (also embossed) has a slice of cake.

More banners and a stamped label (with a fork die cut) finish off the card.

I like the way adding 2" strips to either side of the SCPC changes up the look. To make this card, I cut the base at 10-1/4 x 5-1/2 and scored 3-1/2" from ea side. Then I added the 2" wide strips on each outside edge and continued to decorate the card.
