Half Circle Fun!
Here are the instructions:
1. Cut an 8 ½ x 11 inch piece of cardstock in half to make 5 ½ x 8 ½ inches
2. Score or fold your card in half to make 4 ¼ x 5 ½ inches-this is your base card.
3. You can either cut another different color cardstock or designed paper to 4 x 5 ¼ inches & adhere it to the front of your base card.
a. I used the Stampin Up Scalloped Contours largest rectangular die & our Stampin Cut & Emboss machine.
4. Cut 2 circles 2 ½ inch diameter & 2 circles 1 ¾ inch of 2 different colors for each small & large circles, then cut them in half.
a. Example: I used Pear Pizzaz and Balmy Blue cardstock. One circle of each color for each size.
b. I use the Stampin Up Stylish Shape dies with our cut & emboss machine.
5. Adhere the 4 half circles of each size together staggering them a little to show their colors (like my example).
6. Adhere them to your Scalloped paper or rectangle (whichever you chose to use),
a. Put the larger half circles angled at the top & the smaller half circles angled at the bottom.
7. Cut 6 flowers. You can draw your own or use the Petal Park stamp set & punch. The set makes it so easy!
a. You are welcome to color your flowers or use colored paper to make your shapes. I stamped in Basic Gray & used a Crushed Curry Stampin Write pen to color the middle of each flower.
8. Use your leaves too from the punch & stamp them with the Petal Park stamps. I used Evening Evergreen ink to stamp the leaves.
9. What I did next is tack my flowers into a triangular shape & using Stampin Dimensionals, adhered them to the top & bottom of your half circle groups (like my picture!)
10. Add your leaves – as many as you would like!! I added 2 to the top flowers & 1 to the bottom flowers.
a. You can use Dimensionals to make them stand out or glue them to the card flat.
11. Stamp a sentiment to a extra piece of white cardstock & either cut it out or as I did, use the Tasteful Labels small circle die.
12. I added a little bow in between my circle groups in the middle to make it a little “extra”.
Have fun with this & show me what you did!
