Circle Card Tutorial

Good morning, Stephanie here with a tutorial on using the Circle Cutter.

If you have never used the amazing Circle Cutter, you have absolutely NO idea what a wonderful tool this little guy is!!!!  It's definitely a must have and to prove it, I wanted to show you step by step how I made this circle card.

Step 1 – Using an 8 1/2"x11" sheet of cardstock, and a scoring tool (I used my Scor Pal), score the cardstock at 5 1/2".  Turn it around and mark the 4 1/4" center point (where it meets the 5 1/2" score line) as such:

I inked it just a little so I could see where the center point was.

Step 2 – Set your Circle Cutter to 5 1/4".  Line up the cutting blade with the center point (the reason for the inking), then cut around the circle, beginning about 1/2" from the mark and ending about 1/2" from the mark – as follows:

Step 3 – Repeat on the other side until both sides have been cut.

Step 4 – Trim away the excess paper and "clean up" the area where the card will fold.

Step 5 – Fold in half using a scoring tool and you've created your own card.

Now all you need to do is create various sized circles to fit the card front, distress the edges and finish with assorted punches and a sentiment.  My 2nd layer was cut at 4 3/4" and the purple layer was cut at 3" then embossed before being stitched in place.  I used punch  917  without the inserts to create the strip across the card.

It really is quite easy to do and I'm very happy with my result. 

Happy Scrappin'.
