Delicate cut in blue...

Happy Tuesday,

I've been asked to share this card and explain how it is made so here goes.  This card is made using just one die form the Gerbera Panel set and the outer circle dies form the Gerbera Pop Out Circle die set.  I love the detailed look on this card which is really easy to make!

I started by cutting a square of white card and then cut the triangular panel out out form one side placing the largest side against the edge of the card ( That way the die look like an envelope flap over the card if that makes sense)  I then repeated this until all four sides were cut which will meet up oj the centre of the card.

Next I adhered this to a piece of ultramarine Crafts Too Linen card and trimmed the piece into a neat square.  I then cut the largest circle from the gerbera pop out circle form this piece.  I cut a mat for this using large Press Cut circle in blue and then again in white.

Next I cut the smallest circle die form the centre of the piece using the smallest circle in the Gerbera Pop out circle set.  Again i matted this onto a circle cut with blue then white.

To make up the card I rotated each circle 90 degrees so that the pattern rotates as shown.

  7. Stunning I can’t get over how the focal element is one piece of card and by adding layers of blue and white to disguise the “hole” (that’s if I’ve interpreted the instructions correctly)

  20. Hello John,
    A lovely card! I’m running late but I’m living in a mad house just now hence the very late post!
    I may be missing for a few days but I’ll get in if I can! Will be back for the Christmas Programme! I’m buying no Christmas products until I’ve seen what you have designed!
    Love Myra x
