See how to make a round card with die cuts in no time!

It’s really easy to make a round card with die cuts when you simply layer different sized and edged circles together. The bonus of this project is that because it’s a flip-over card, it can double as the cutest summer gift tag! Let’s see just how easy this is to put together!

Allison chose a fishie theme but you can use this easy design idea with any them you like. First, cut the base with your largest circle die – here, Allie used our Nested Circle Stitch die set to cut white card stock. Now choose circles that graduate down in size to create your layers; here Allie used another stitched circle and a die from our Nested Circle Scallop set.
While you have your machine out, you can cut a frame using two circles in the closest sizes as you can see with the white scallop frame below.

Decorate your layers as you like. Here, Allie has used Sonata Color Fuse ink to edge one layer and she’s applied a stencil over another.

Adhere your layers together starting from largest to smallest, adding your frame over the top of the last layer to add some emphasis.

Depending on your theme, it can be really cute to add your greeting on a smaller version of the same shape to create that “visual echo” but flags and pennants look great with all these curves, too.

Once you’ve created this super easy, basic design, you can decorate it with any elements you like. Allie chose to use some of our new fish from our new Under the Sea #2 stamp set with coordinating dies to cut them out in a flash!

You will want to add your elements with a mix of dimensional adhesive and either tape or liquid glue for a variety in the depth of these elements.
