CASology #33 (Circle) Again, Addicted to CAS #7 (Masculine)

As mentioned in my few-minutes-ago post, this is my second offering for CASology‘s ‘Circle’ cue card.  It’s also for this fortnight’s challenge at Addicted to CAS … the lovely Sue is the host this time and has set the code word ‘Masculine’.

This time, there’s just one set of concentric circles, cut out of the centre of the white card base panel using Cricut Accent Essentials.  I folded each circle in half, marked the green base to create the ‘spine’ and adhered the white panel to the base.  The folded circles were then opened flat again, put back into their ‘space’ on the base and I started sticking … left side with the biggest semi circle, right for the next, and so on, all the way down to the smallest one, making sure the folds crossed one another at the spine.  The ‘free’ halves add the dimension.

I’m rather happier with this than with the last one … the narrow circles work better, the whole image is ‘lighter’ as there’s just the one set of die cuts, and the colours are simpler.  Think I might do some more of these at some stage using different colours … feminine, sunny, fun … lots of options!

Off to be inspired with a wander around all the other entries … thanks so much, as ever, for coming by, your visits and comments make my day!  Anita 🙂

    Oh my goodness! I studied the pics (clicked back and forth a hundred time) to see what you had done to create the different effect. Had I read your very well written explanation more thoroughly, I would have realized how you achieved this awesome result!

    Both cards are fantastic! I love the colors that you used on the first card. The narrow circles do create a lighter effect than the wider circles. Cleverly created with spectacular results. Huge WOW factor!

    Oh. My. Gosh. Brilliant, thoroughly brilliant. First, perfect colors, second, perfect placement, third, absolutely cool, imaginative, gorgeous, CAS, brilliant (have I said brilliant yet?…), circle design. Cannot even come up with proper words….WINNER for sure. Btw, google the Milwaukee Art Museum for an outside view of its design. That’s what I first thought of when I saw your card. Wowzer. Bev

    Oh. My. Word. I’ve read it 3 times and strained my eyes to understand the left and right part and I think I finally get it. This is so flippin cool! I’m SO glad that CASology inspired you to this!

    ANITA IN FRANCE … my favorite card EVER of yours!! A friend told me to go check this out (although I would have seen it eventually, it just takes me a loooong time to go through my reader and still keep with with daily life) and wow-oh-wow, you have totally blown me away. Love your thin circles, love the simple green and white so the focus is on your 3d element, love that’s is so interesting, yet still CAS. And love the 3D, of course. So well done!!
