Since it’s graduation time I thought this week and next week
I would share a couple of cards I made for a niece and nephew who are graduating
high school this year. My inspiration
for both of these cards came from Pinterest.
Did you know that Kreaxions now has THREE Pinterest pages? You can check out the Design Team Page here - Just Imagine/Kreaxions Design Team on Pinterest. This Pinterest page focuses on the wonderful Kreaxions Circle Cutter . And this Pinterest page shares projects not posted on this blog. This blog post features a circle shaped graduation card.
First take a premade card base and measure how large a
circle you can cut from it. This base
was a 5 x 6.5 inch base and I was able to cut a 4.5 inch circle from that. In order to leave a piece at the top of the
card to keep it together I started at the bottom center and cut up to the spot
where I wanted to stop on each side. The
most awesome Kreaxions Circle Cutter made this super easy to do and cut easily
into both layers of the base card! I
wanted some extra color so I sprayed the white base with two shades of Glimmer
Mist and dropped some dots of gold Alcohol Ink on it. Then I used the Alcohol Ink to color all of
Next I used Kreaxions Stencil B to mark where I wanted to
punch my border around the circle.
Kreaxions #301 with Template A on this card.
Make sure you mark your paper on the reverse side and when you punch
just line up the drawn lines with the little tick mark in the center of your
Kreaxions punch (they all have one). And I used the Kreaxions PunchMate to help me save my wrists.
Next I cut two circles the same size as my base for the
inside top and bottom of the card. This
helped enhance the punched border. Again
the Kreaxions Circle Cutter makes this easy because everything’s cut the same
size without making any adjustments! I used Template C to create a mat for my written sentiment
to be added later.
Finally I used the little stars punched from the front of
the card to enhance the inside. My Xyron
X Sticker Maker makes using these little pieces easy! To enhance the stars on both the front and
the inside of the card I drew little dots with my glitter pen. To finish the card off, I added stickers,
punched holes with eyelets to add a piece of ribbon and stamped a
