Intricut Circle Nesting Die Set
Select a white A5 card blank and trim a piece of iridescent foil card to slightly smaller than the card front and stick into place with double-sided tape.
Cut a piece of white linen card (you could use any textured card you have in your stash) to measure 14 x 20cm. Cut a circle aperture into the right-hand side of this card piece. Ink around the circle aperture with an embossing ink pad and heat emboss with silver embossing powder.
Take the circle of cardstock removed in step two. Stamp the selected sentiment into the centre with ‘Picked Raspberry’ Distress Oxide ink. Cut a cloud mask from a scrap of cardstock and use ‘Spun Sugar’ Distress Oxide ink to stencil a cloud design around the stamped area working from the top of the area downwards. Ink around the whole edge of the circle to finish and set aside to dry.
Temporarily centre the aperture section of card over the iridescent card and use as a guide to stick down the inked sentiment circle.
Remove the white card again being careful not to disturb the sentiment circle from its position. Cut a square of acetate slightly larger than the aperture and adhere it to the rear of the aperture using strong double-sided tape. Place adhesive 3D foam pads around the edge of the sentiment circle ensuring that no gaps are left. Fill the area with stars and remove the protective film from the foam pads.
Add more 3D foam pads to the rear of the white aperture piece. Centre once again over the rainbow mirror mat and press down securely into place paying particular attention to the area holding the crystal stars. Do not attempt to shake the card until a tight seal with the foam circle has been achieved.
Die-cut the castle from rainbow mirror, dark and pale pink shades of cardstock and layer together using a glue pen to create a topper. Snip the door area open in the upper layer and open up to reveal a number 8 (or your desired value) inside.
Place the die-cut castle topper to the left of the shaker circle as shown and hold in place using 3D foam pads. Complete the design with a “100% spoilt” sentiment in the top right-hand corner of the circle aperture.
