Plaid Birthday Wishes - Simon Says Stamp DIEcember Release

Good morning! I'm back with another couple of cards for DIEcember using the fabulous NEW DIEcember release from Simon Says Stamp! Today I have a duo of cards featuring the beautiful new Birthday Wishes Circle Die! I made a lot of birthday cards, so I was excited about this die - so great for making a focal point on cards, especially if you add some gorgeous pattern paper to go along with it! true DIEcember fashion - these cards have absolutely NO stamping on them - only die cutting!

I die cut a black circle using my Nested Circle Dies - there is one size that was just perfect to tuck behind this die. 

I layered them together, then cut a circle one size larger from Lipstick cardstock to layer them together.

I chose two lovely pattern papers from my Photoplay Kringle and Co 6x6 Paper Pad - it was included in the December Card Kit that is now sold out, but still available separately.

I trimmed them down to A2 size panel, and then added some white splatters with white acrylic paint thinned down with a bit of water.

Next, I took those circles I had layered together, and punched a hole in each side of them.

I used that hole to thread through some jute string, and wrap it around the entire card front several times.

I attached each circle with a bit of foam adhesive at the top and bottom as well to make sure it was held sturdily in place.

Once everything was settled in place, I tied the bow along the side - the perfect bit of finishing texture to these cards!

Which background pattern paper do you like best? I've always loved Buffalo Plaid, but that other plaid is pretty lovely as well!
