Rose Wonder, Whole Lot of Lovely, Flourish Thinlits, Birthday Card, Camera Lens Technique

This card was fun to make.  A different technique too!  It's called "Camera Lens" or "Telescope" technique.  Though I would tend to lean more towards the "Camera Lens" wording because a telescope gets smaller as it goes outward.  Anyway, it was fun to do.  

I found 3 circles that worked well together.  Mine measured 1-1/2", 2-1/8" and 2-5/8".  I did make a template for each so I could get them centered better.  And once I got them all punched out, I set them in place and took them to the cutter to make the whole stack measure 4" x 5-1/4".  

I textured the top one with the new "Garden Trellis" embossing folder.  I also added Wink of Stella around each circle.

The focal part of the card is a flower from the "Whole Lot of Lovely" Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I set that in place using Dimensionals.  The DSP wasn't very big, it doesn't need to be.  Next I added Dimensionals to the center circle and set that in place.  I also did that with the large circle.  Once they were stacked on top of each other with Dimensionals, I noticed that some of the edges weren't even. I just took it to the cutter and trimmed it up.  I set that stack in place on a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  

The words are from the "Rose Wonder" set.  I stamped them using Basic Black ink.  I used a stitched oval die to cut them out. I used a scalloped oval for the layer and taped the words on top. I set it on the front of the card and it got lost, so I had to cut a Whisper White oval and I was happy with how that turned out.  I set that in place using Dimensionals. 

For the embellishments around the circles, I used the "Flourish" Thinlits to make them.  I die cut them using Whisper White card stock and I set them in place with small glue dots.  I just sort of tucked them in place and pressed down where the glue dots were placed.  One on each end tip and one on a spot that would be touching the front of the card.  And that was it.  It's a cool technique and I know I did not do it justice with this card.  I want to give it another try sometime.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
