Fold a 5 ½" x 8 ½" piece of Whisper White cardstock in half,
creasing it well with a bone folder.
You will be using this as your canvas for the entire card.
Using the two middle sizes of circles from the Stitched Shapes die set,
cut eight circles of each from an assortment of Designer Series Paper scraps.
They don’t need to match at all.
Try to cut no two circles of the same DSP.
The goal of this card is to make it look like a silly quilt and to use up those little scraps of DSP that you could not bear to throw away.
Choose a random piece of solid cardstock
and cut a circle with the larger of the two circle dies.
Not matching anything, pair up the sets of circles, one small, one large.
Glue them together, not centering any of the small circles.
Stamp a sentiment in the center solid circle.
Adhere this circle to the approximate center of the card
with a couple of .
Working from the center circle,
add in the other pairs so they approximately line up.
You can see from my sample that I didn’t do a great job of this. No matter.
Once all the circles are adhered to the card base,
use paper snips to trim all the excess even with the edges of the card.
Most normal people would throw these cut-off pieces away. Not me!
See my other card sample for how I rescued them.
With the Small Bloom Punch, punch out a flower from another random DSP scrap.
Add that to one of the double circles with a Dimensional.
