At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous The East Wind as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

When I saw the beautiful Scarf Lover by The East Wind I just knew I wanted to make a circular shaped card but I also had the idea of adding dimension.I coloured her with Spectrum Noir Pencils,added some 3D Crystal Lacquer to her eyes,lips and badges¬†in her scarf before fussy cutting her.The card base was created by die cutting two Nestie shapes and cutting an aperture in one.To give lift to the top layer I concertinaed two strips of card and adhered them on each side of the back piece,making sure they were parallel.The top piece was carefully lined up then stuck into place.*Tip* I chose to stand the scalloped cricle on two ‘bumps’ for more stability,this also means it free stands without the need for trimming.The patterned backing paper was cut from the same size die as the aperture but the photo angle shows the dimension better so it appears to be smaller.A length of hessian/jute ribbon with a frilled ribbon has been laid across the back.The image was then popped up on foam tape.I layered a couple of paper flowers and added a wooden heart shaped button top.This has been threaded with a scrap piece of the hessian ribbon that fell off the¬†end bit I trimmed.Behind that a couple of pearl headed pins have been safely tucked in with foam tape (which also holds the flower in place).Rather than throw away the off cut of hessian I inserted it at the back.The sentiment has been stamped onto a wooden plaque.I found these¬†on The Works website for a pound and was quite impressed to find twelve in the pack (4 each of 3 different styles) ūüėÄ I if hadn’t have added the wooden embellishments this card could be squashed flat for posting – but this is intended for hand delivery ūüôā
