Waste of make up

   The theme for the challenge starting at Crafty Cardmakers today is shaped cards. 
   I used a Spellbinders grand big scalloped circle die to create an easel card. Using the same size die I cut out black card and trimmed it, attaching the trimmed edge to the edge of the easel card base and the main part to the front of the card. I then cut two scalloped circles from stripped paper from Papermania and attached one to the base and the other to the front of the card.
   The image is from Acid Drops and Whatnots stamp set 'Waste of Make-Up'. After colouring it using Promarkers I cut it out with a circle die and matted it onto a circle of black card.

   To form the stop for the card I stamped the sentiment onto white card which I then cut out using a Spellbinders large classic scalloped circle die. This I then matted onto black card before attaching to the base using foam pads.
