playtime 5

Dont even ask why these are called playtime, see playtime 1 for the reason why!

right another of the cards from playtime, or PC failure!:

This is using Three of the layers from the tattered Lace 3 in 1 circle die.
And those layers were the starting point for this card. See I did actually mean it when I said I start a card with what ever bit grabs my interest!
So I cut the die out on some Gold pearlised paper. I needed a small circle for the centre, so that the Lugs could hold it in place. and then I needed another circle to mount the additional 2 layers, and the centre. Now PC was out of use, so I routed out my Martha Stewart Circle cutter, one of those with ball bearings, and you put the knife in and spin it round?
I dont normally use it, as you need the card/paper to be at least 6x6 to stop it sliding, and I can never quite position it over the centre of a given circle that I want to cut out. But as my Zingster was out of commission, due to PC issues, I had to resort to old style!
So Centura Pearl out, cut, and them stamp the sentiment in the smallest circle, with Brilliance Gold ink, and some Antique Gold embossing powder.
Then run both circles through the E-bosser in the A4 Darice Argyle folder.
Then simply centralise and stack the circles.
Next up was the card base, a 5.5x5.5 pre made base, and some pearlised patterned paper from my stash, a piece of Chocolate Brown /gold ribbon form Fantastic Ribbons, and 3 gems.

So have you spotted the 3rd layer yet?

It is there I promise!

Oh look! Right on the edge of the big circle?
