Swingin' Circle Card

As usual, I hoarded my beautiful Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper (DSP) which is now retired.  I decided it might be time to cut some of this pretty Beyond the Garden DSP so I will have room for the new 2015 - 2016 DSP!  I must have been in a nostalgic mood because I used the small leaf stamp from the now retired Fabulous Floret set with Crumb Cake ink (stamped off) to make my own DSP for the inside.  Well, can you call it "the inside" when you use the Circle Card Thinlit?  What do you think?

Excuse my finger at the bottom of the picture.  I wanted you to see it closed the way it comes out of an envelope.

It is easy to cut the DSP to coordinate with the circle card by lining up the 1 7/8" x 5 1/4" piece of paper just inside the smaller side on the cutting edge of the thinlit.  Then run it through the Big Shot with the cut side up, so that you can see the placement, using your usual "sandwich".  Do the same thing with the 2 3/4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White card stock DSP you made yourself by lining it up with the larger side of the thinlit.

The card stock base is a 6" x 5 1/2" piece of Tangerine Twist.  The flower from Secret Garden Stamp Set and the "Hello" Swirls and Curls Verse  below are stamped with Pacific Point.  Punch both out with a 2" circle punch.  The background Pacific Point card stock is cut with the 2 3/8" scallop circle punch.

Here is the card when opened.  You may wish to sign you card on the left side of the white card stock so that your signature stays hidden behind the accordian fold.  Or not. 
Now it is your turn to use some of your left over DSP!  Any stamp that fits into a 2 " circle would look great.  If the pattern on the reverse side of your chosen DSP is not too busy, it will look nice on the right side. 

For the punches, thinlit die, card stock and inks, see below.
