Cutting Cafe Inspiration/Circle Sentiments

Our inspiration post at The Cutting Cafe Blog this week is to design using big sentiments. I love them all and it is always hard to settle for one. I decided to use the big sentiment for the baby set right here. Here I am again, making a door hanger.
I used my Cricut to cut 2 big circles with my double sided papers. (There are circles on many many cartridges, but I used George and Basic Shapes to cut my two.) Then I sit for 10 minutes trying to decide which side of the paper to show. That's the hardest part of making my card designs.... All 3 layers have been embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug. I added a small round and square EK Success Punch and then I mounted the precious little Onesie on top.
I've added groups of flowers in white and pink around the whole design. I used my Crop A Dile to place a brad and I strung bright green ribbon through for the ability to hang from a door knob or on the wall. Be sure to check out the Cafe's Inspiration blog on Wednesday. You'll see some wonderful things, I promise.

How adorable is this door hanger Carole - too sweet.
I love that you had a dilemma with which side of the paper to show - I have that same dilemma all the time, and sometimes wish they would go back to single sided papers (remember those days)I waste sooo much time trying to decide, I could get double the crafting done in the time wasted....Hugs x
