Hello there everyone! I hope your summer is a good one so far! I have been trying to beat the heat and spending lots of time in my craft room creating some fun cards! My latest batch that I am sharing with you today is a technique that I love to turn to, to mix up my card making! Today I’m sharing Circle shaped cards!
These little beauties are so much fun, and even better, so simple to make! Let me show you the basic steps on how I created my cards:
Cut out 2 circles. I used my metal dies to cut out the circles, they measure 4 inches. You can cut your circles out on a digital die-cutting machine, from a circle cutter, or even from the awesome SN@P Circle Photo Crops stencils.
Next, take one of your circles and make a score line. I scored mine at 3/8 inches.
Now, fold the paper back so you have a small flap. Add some strong adhesive to the flap.
Line the two circles up and now you have your card base! So simple!
I designed 6 cards using this technique and I used the lovely “The Little Things” collection. To be honest, I was inspired to make circle-shaped cards because of all of the beautiful wreaths in this collection. I thought they would work out so well on a circle-shaped card base. I used one of the wreaths with a saying on it for this card:
My next card was made by cutting some of the 4x4 Element Papers. I used a slightly smaller circle die cut to make these square cards into circles, and then added them to the card bases. I decorated it with various Bits and Pieces from the collection.
The rest of the cards were made with some of the 6x8 papers and lots of Floral Bits and Pieces, Bits and Pieces, and Journal Bits and Pieces as well as stickers, Decorative Brads, and Enamel Dots.
I hope I have inspired you to create some circle-shaped cards of your own. Grab your favorite collection and see what fun creations you can come up with – It’s fun to think outside of the box (literally!) sometimes when making cards! Happy crafting friends!
