Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Tuesday Tutorial - Cascading Circles

Hi Everybody,

Todays card is one way to use up all those pretty paper bits that you have left over in your "Bit Box" 
As long as they are large enough to cover the holes then you are fine and this is the easiest card you are ever going to make.
 Quick, simple and effective for any gender or age group.
Spellbinders Supplies:
Other Supplies:
  • Foam pads
  • Glue 
  • Paper scraps
  • Embossing Folder
Create the base card by cutting two white panels from die #7 Matting Basics A
Create another layer in white from die =7 Matting Basics B and emboss this layer.
Add these two together with foam in between the layers
With the Cascading Circles cut this two or three times in white and stack together for strength
Cover the different holes with the pattern and colours you want from your scraps and cut as many as you need to have a different colour and size throughout the card

I added my stacked Cascading Circles to some self adhesive paper and then added the circles in the colours I wanted with foam pads. The foam keeps the whole shape raised from the card base

Stamp "Happy" on to one of the largest white circles and "Birthday" onto another piece of white card and cut into a strip with fish tails at one end 

Add this strip just below the "Happy" with foam underneath

Alter the colours for a more masculine look 

More tomorrow ...
