Striped Circle


I’m sure there are other methods, but this is how I did it. First, I cut six strips of  Winter Meadow Designer Paper, 4″ X 1/2″. Then, I glued them on Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″. The Deckled Circles Die, that has a circumference of 2 7/8″, was used to cut the circle. After cutting, I placed it on Dimensionals.

You’ll have to come back tomorrow to see how I used what remained.


For the background, I cut Basic White Cardstock with the largest Deckled Rectangles Die, to matched the edge of the circle. Then, I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock Ink. “Tidings Of Comfort and Joy” is from the Christmas Classics Stamp Set.

Before gluing the layer to a Pretty Peacock card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, I embossed it with the Merry Melody Embossing Folder.


To complete the design I cut a tree from More Dazzle Specialty Paper, using a Reindeer Die, and attached it with Dimensionals. I love the touch of sparkle that this paper provides!


I was inspired by TGIF.
