Hinged Cards

Happy Memorial Day! Today over on Splitcoast, Lynn has set us a wonderful 'hinged card' challenge. You can find all the details here. A few weeks ago, I designed a round hinged card for one of my techniques classes so I thought I'd show my round variation here!

This is the card closed. It's made using the large scallop circle Sizzix Die as the base, and then layers of circles made with the Circle Scissor Plus. Make two of the top white circle and cut one in half, this makes the half circle for the hinged top ... and just attach it to the layers with a brad. Easy Peasy!

I cut out the little bird from 'Cheep Talk' and used his tail as the handle for opening the hinged top half ... it works really well and is a little bit different! Hope you like the idea and have a go yourself.

Recipe
Stamps : Cheep Talk
Cardstock : Whisper White, Pacific Point
Ink : Creamy Caramel, Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point
Accessories : Big Shot, Sizzix Scallop Circle, Circle Scissor Plus, Trio Flower Punch, Rhinestone Brad, Paper Piercer

What an adorable card Emma! Those images are perfect for the shape of your card and I love how you can use the bird to open the hinge. So sweet!
