Papercraft Star 5
♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥
This week's Papercraft Star challenge is circles !
If you have had a look at the forums at Papercraft Star, you may remember the discussions about cutting circles. Everyone avoids them ! That is what makes this challenge so much fun - stretching our minds and fingers to do those difficult things !!
So, today I tried to use a lot of circles a lot of different ways. Of course, the circle paper (my first easy-way-out solution to this challenge ), the card, the swirly, the sentiment and the little paper piercings.
I used my SCAL to cut the card by simply welding two circles together, and the swirly was (gulp) in an actual paid-for file from SVGcuts. I usually use only freebies, but I will admit I have spent about $20 at that site and acquired a huge truckload of things I am crazy about. So, while I was at it anyway with the SCAL I just cut my scalloped circle and blue circle too....
So - challenge opens today ! Submissions close on Saturday 7/24, voting closes Monday 7/26. Head on over to Papercraft Star, and vote, even if you don't submit. It is a terrific way to support your fellow artists, and while you are there, check out the fun forums too !!
And now for the small print:
Cardstock : Recollections
Paper : K & Co.
Ribbon : Michael's dollar bin
Rub-on sentiment : old, from stash
Wow, what a cheap little card this was !!
