For my project today I created this adorable round baby card using the new Stacked Circles and the previously released Basic Circles.
For the card base I cut two of the smallest scallop circle from Stacked Circles from light blue cardstock. One of them I cut down the middle. Making sure the scallops would line up right, I scored the second circle twice, at 3/8 and 4 1/8 inches. I used these flaps to glue the two half circles onto the other one, creating a gate fold circle card.
To decorate the card I cut the large circle from Basic Circles from the same cardstock and glued it to the inside of the left flap, making sure it was centered on the card. For the outside of the card, I cut the same large circle from silver cardstock, then using the largest circle from Stacked Circles I could cut it out again to create a thin silver frame. Since the silver frame and the blue circle added to the card is the same size, it is fairly simple to align them and glue down the silver frame on the front of the card.
Using the largest “plain” circle from Stacked Circles again, I cut it out of white cardstock and ink blended clouds all over it. This fit perfectly inside the silver frame, since I used the same die.
For my stamped images I used the Wish Upon A Star and Fly With Me stamps, which I stamped with pumice stone distress oxide and clear heat embossed. Then I colored them in using watercolor makers and cut them out using the matching dies.
For my sentiment I used one of the small sentiments from Family Time.
I added most of the images directly to the cloud background, but I popped up the bunny and the sentiment using a few foam squares.
