Happy Birthday DCM


Can you believe its been a whole year since Daring CardMakers launched our first dare? Its been an amazing year and a complete learning curve for myself and the whole team I am sure. Personally I cannot thank the team enough for pushing me on in my craft and being fab friends. We also want to thank you guys - the darers and our guest designers - for making it the success it is, and for all the new friends we have met. Therefore this weeks dare is called CIRCLE OF FRIENDS and quite simply all we ask is that your card features a circle!



My card this week is simple but I think its quite funky too.



I started with a piece of white textured card stock and folded it to make my base card and inked around the edges with a brown Versacolour ink pad. The main ingredients from this card are from August's Self Addressed Kit and use the KI Memories Celebration Surprise Collection of papers.



Firstly I took a large circle chipboard button by Deluxe Designs and covered it with the "hoopla" paper and then cut a smaller circle from a piece of Dark Tangerine Bazzill card. I used my cropodile to punch two holes in it and inked the edges of the whole thing. I then tied a pice of orange gingham ribbon through the holes. I then adhered it to the corner of the card blank



I then used a circle punch to punch four circles, again in the hoopla paper and inked them up again and arranged them round the chipboard button. I attached a strip of the orange gingham vertically down open edge of the card.



Using Kelly Panacci Rub-ons I attached the greeting to a piece of a scrap of the Tangerine card and matted it onto yet more Hoopla paper. This was attached to the top quarter of the card and there you have it, a quick, simple (arent mine always!) but funky card.



All thats left to do is wish daring cardmakers everywhere a Happy Birthday and we hope you will continue to join us and help us grow over the next year.



Dont forget to check out DCM to see the other birthday dare cards from the team and our extended darers.
