DCM 5cms Challenge




Over at Daring Cardmakers this week, the dare is to make a card using no more than 5cms in total for the decorated area of the card (that's SMALL), plus you are allowed a sentiment. I decided that using the cuttlebug to emboss the background did not count, I used swiss dots which does not show in the photo. The umbrella stamp and sentiment are by Stampin Up. I cut the circle to 4cms, then used a 4.5cm scallop. I used a very narrow card, so the size of the image looks bigger.The scallop circle was done with nestabilities. I started to get quite stressed about this, making complicated calculations in cms, then decided that, hey, I was within the guidelines (give or take a teensy bit of red card!)
