let's celebrate - triple circle kinetic card

I've had some interest in how I made this card so have added the instructions below.

Would love to see your versions too

Cut an A3 sheet of Centura Pearl to 15cm wide.
Position the circle pop out using the side panel as a guide and cut.
Using the centre fold line of the die, place onto the card at 21cm and cut again, then at 34cm.
Cut an additional piece of card 15 x 9cm, place on the right hand side (last cut) trace around the inside of the circle, trim and attach to make the length.
Cut the small panel using the die cut from patterned papers (I have used Shabby Chic)
Cut two pieces 14 x 10.5cm one 14 x 8.5cm. Place onto the card, trace around the aperture and trim.
Glue these into place using Collall all purpose glue which will allow time to adjust.
Using the Circle swing die, cut 3 circles from patterned paper and place these on the front.
Cut two sentiments using Centura Pearl and two background using the circle die only. Fix these in the 1st and 3rd circles.
For the centre circle, cut a doily from the Shabby Chic collection using Centura Pearl and glue in place.
Die-cut a variety of flowers, I have used English Country Garden floral duo. Colour the centres and drag along the petals using Distress ink and shape.
Cut two flourishes from the Shabby Chic collection and trim into smaller elements.
Place the flowers onto the card and add the flourishes behind.
Finish with gems.
