I was inspired by the CAS-tastic Challenge sketch this week:
And here's my interpretation:
As you can see I did deviate a bit but sometimes you've got to go where inspiration takes you (at least that's what I reckon!)
And here's the inside view:
I don't usually like showing ribbon when someone opens the card, but for this card to work the way I wanted (by having a hole to show the train engine) I was going to have to bite the bullet, this once.
To get the circle where I wanted it, I used my new Big Shot and Circle nestabilities (I think it was the 3rd smallest circle in the SM pack). I held the closed card up to the window where the light was shining in so that I could get the circle right where I wanted it.
I then marked the inside edge of the nestability with my pencil, which made it easier to position it while stacking up my Big Shot 'sandwich'.
I do recommend using scrap bits of the same paper/card you will be using in your project to give the sandwich a test run first and adjust where needed - especially when cutting cardstock - as sometimes I forget and I end up with slightly embossed edges... oops!
