Four Rainbow Circles Cards (Celebrating 30 Days of Pisces 2016, #10, #11, #12, #13)

Hi everyone! :o)

Finally sunny here!!! I'm bursting with happiness!!! :o)

Today I'll be sharing couple CAS (clean and simple) cards I made for a Celebrating 30 Days of Pisces 2016 personal challenge. I'll post them in separate posts through the day. :o)

If you like, visit my Celebrating 30 Days of Pisces 2016 page, where you can find more about my challenge, photo gallery and links to each card. :o)

First up today are these Rainbow Circles Cards.

A while ago I saw a gorgeous card made by Elaine of Craft-E-Place and fell in love with it. Such a brilliant CAS design! I had to CASE it. :o)

First I made this one.

I heat embossed circles on a white watercolor paper panel, colored them in watercolor technique with Stabilo Markers and glued the panel on a card base. Large circles are form Jane's Doodles 'Geometric Patterns' stamp set, which is retired, and smaller circles from Create a Smile 'Perfect Tune' Stamp set. Then, I heat embossed a sentiment from The Alley Way Stamps 'From Us' stamp set on a black cardstock paper stripe, cut the banner shape, glued 3D foams on the back of the banner and glued it on the card. At the end I rounded two opposite corners of the card with paper puncher and my card was finished.

I was so satisfied with my card I had to make one more. I rotated the first card and made this one.

As I was making my cards I decided these two will be for my adorable twin nephews, Jan and Žan. They are my cousin's sons and will turn two in May. :o)

I have more twins in my family, cousins Tanja and Sandra. I decided to make similar cards for them too.

And close up look...

I'm very satisfied with my cards and I'm sure twins will like them. :o) Thank you Elaine for the inspiration!!! :o)
