Circle Swing Fold Cards - Poinsettias and Pumpkins

This is a circle swing fold card. The first card was created using a Cricut Design Space file from Julie Carriere. It made the assembly of this card so very easy as everything was cut on the Cricut. She also provided the pieces for the poinsettia so I used that for the centre of the circle. 

The patterned papers have beautiful poinsettia and holly images on them - I paired them with some CTMH cardstock. The panels were decorated and I assembled the poinsettia to go in the front circle. White beads were used for the center of the flower. The sentiment "joy" on the back was stamped and I added some Stickles to the flourish. 

The second card was resized to a standard A2 size card - that wasn't the easiest thing to do! Rather than using the Cricut, I used circle dies to cut the opening and the extra circles. Lining up dies exactly is difficult... The theme of this second card is autumn with a focus on pumpkins. I coloured and fussy cut the pumpkins and leaves to add to the front. The sentiment on the back was stamped with two colours and I added some Goldenrod Stickles around the phrase.
