What a girly and fun birthday card with circles! Everyone has circle punches or dies right? I used the Picture This set of dies for mine since it makes great stitched circles! But if you’ve got the Layering Circles or lots of different sized circle punches, this card is a breeze!
Before we get started, have you got one of those friends? You know, the ones you get to be sarcastic with? And they’re sarcastic right back atcha?
The kind that will really appreciate this saying from the Lighthearted Lines stamp set.
The greeting is just one of many in this fun stamp set from the 2021-22 Annual Catalogue.
Which one can you picture using the most?

One of the great things about this card is how adaptable it is! Use any colours you like! Any sizes of circles! Or if triangles or squares are more your thing, give those a try too!
When I first saw the Picture This Die used on page 67 of the annual catalogue, I wasn’t that impressed. But when I started to see cards made with the stitched circles, I first wondered where they came from…and then did a bit of a head slap!
Of course then I HAD to have it! You can never have too many circles in my book – and stitched ones are the best!
With the Picture This die, with each run through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine, you get three sizes of circles. One large, 2 medium and 3 small circles. That leaves all kinds of diecuts to make multiple cards like this one just by switching up the colours and placement!
