Two Simple Words

This is my entry for Cricut Cardz Challenge #57- use the colors red, black and white only.

 A side view, and the inisde. 

The two simple words:


Close up of the details of the card:









Here are the construction details:

I used these papers.  The solid black, red and white are Bazzil and the black polka dot is DCWV either stack 6 or 7.
For the card base I used the Smiley Cards Cartridge and the Daisy (I call it butter cookie) card.

There are a few steps to alter the card base itself to make the whole card -

First: I used the hide detail button on the Gypsy to remove the large circle in the middle of the right side part of the card.  It was way to big for what I wanted. 
Second: I picked the circle cut from George and Basic Shapes, and replaced the large circle with a 2" circle.  I welded these together and cut the card.
Third: I copied this image to the next layer tab and moved the card base to the left so only the flower on the right side was showing.  I added another circle from George that would fit just inside the scallops of the flower.  This will be used on the inside of the card.

Fourth: I copied the flower top again and reduced the size by .25" as a white liner for the base.  I removed the 2" circle from the center.  This is also for the inside of the card.
Then I made the doilies.  They are cut from the Holiday Cakes Cartridge.

I followed the same steps to replace the large circle in the center with the 2" circle.  I made one doily larger than the other so they could be layered.
I know it sounds like a lot of steps, but the longest part of this card was to make sure all the little circles in the doilies were removed!
Let me know if you have any questions or comments.  Thanks for stopping by.
