I’ve been following Kristina Werner’s Holiday Card Series over at her blog, and was going to make another Christmas card today, but then I remembered a friend who has a birthday coming up next week. Kristina’s day 2 design works perfectly for a birthday card.
Kristina used her Silhouette to cut out the card and flower. Since I don’t have a Silhouette, I used my Coluzzle. The center circle is 2 3/4″ and the green cardstock is 4 1/2″. For the flower I punched 1 1/4″ circles and glued them around the back of the inner circle.
It’s a good idea to use a repositionable adhesive on the back of the circle you’re covering with round punches as, inevitably, something will have to be repositioned at the end.
In order to have a completely round card, and not have a slice missing at the top, cut two circles for your card base. Score one of the circles an inch or so from one edge and cover that small section with glue. Adhere your other circle and now you have a round card that will open neatly.
