Tutorial: Circle Cards


Circle cards are fairly easy to construct, and the technique can be used for just about any shaped card that you wish to make.  The only thing you must remember is to leave a spine where the card can fold.  If you cut all the way through you will only end up with two pieces of cardboard!


1.  Use your favourite circle cutting tool to prepare the card base.  You will notice that the circle on the left has one flat side, which is the actual fold of the card.  The circle on the right is just a single piece of cardboard cut to the same size.  I will adhere the full circle to the front of the card so that it appears to be whole.


2.  Gather all the pieces you wish to use for your card.  I have the card blank, which forms the base of the card; the full circle you saw in the last photo, which I embossed with little dots; a red layer and a purple layer with a piece of ribbon threaded through it; and my coloured image.


3.  Simply layer your card as you wish, securing each piece of cardboard with double sided tape or glue.


4.  Add some extra embellishments if you wish, and your card is done!

  10. I cannot tell you how I ended up on your site, but I am sure thankful I was guided here, must have been a little intervention from above. I am not an artist, but I love your work and got so inspired, I am going to try to make some cards for my family. Thank you for sharing your wonderful gift. Blessings, June
