Tutorial Challenge #2- Circle Easel Card

There is actually two videos for you to use.  The first one is using a die cutting machine.  You can use manual or electric (if you weld your circles together).  The second is the "old fashion way", using just paper, scissors and glue.

  • Here is my first card using a machine...


Tutorial #1


  • Here is my second card using the "tag" technique that I cut out with my paper trimmer...



(the design for this card was for a challenge for Colorful Creations... use your favorite products, in this case: my cuttlebug and circle dies, Memento ink, embossing powers/gun, sparkle/glitter, ribbon.  AND to use something that you are not comfortable with, so I used my Stamp Around set from Inkadinkado (I bought it awhile ago and  tested out of the box and never touched it again.  I also used a stick pin which is my first time.  Overall I think this is one of my favorite cards.

Tutorial #2


 I have a 3rd "mini" tutorial...  Making a circle easel card very fast! All you need is a bowl, pencils, scissors and some adhesive.

  • Using a small bowl, flip it over and trace the outside once and then trace it again but this time overlap the first circle a little bit.
  • Now trace another circle by itself ( red paper)...the small circle was just extra to show that you can get two sizes with 1 bowl. I just traced the bottom of the bowl to get the smaller circle.


  •  Now cut the circles out by hand


  •  Fold the double circle where they meet in the center
  • Next fold the top circle in half and down (I just eye balled it)


  •  Finally adhere the single circle to the bottom portion of the folded circle

There you go! Nice and Easy!


Hope you have a blessed day and thanks for stopping by,
Sandy,
