Step by Step:

Fold a 10″ x 5″ piece of white card in half to make a 5″ x 5″ square. Place the circle die on the card, pushed up slightly, so that it doesn’t cut through the top (as shown) and run it through a Die cutting machine. You may need to run it back and forth a few times to cut through the 2 layers.

Taking the scalloped circle Die, which should be larger than the card base, cut out 2 pieces from white card. Using the same die as you used for the base, cut another circle from white card. Finally, cut 2 pieces of patterned paper using a circle die slightly smaller than the on used for the base.

    I love how you made this card. Unfortunately, I don’t own a die cutter so I can’t try this, although I can make a circle card if I used a circle something like a glass or plastic cover, something like that. I always make square cards but a round one would be fun. I might have to try that on some scrap paper. I even have scissors that can make that cut so I want to try that. If I do it, and use one of your stamps, I will post it. Thanks for the idea!
