Mojo Monday Sketch-Sweet Hola!


Good morning it is time for a another Mojo Monday Sketch, this week it is circle or square.....I adore these little circle cards.  I have simple instructions on how to make my circle cards here.  I like for them to be a complete circle and not squared off at the top.  I have both sets of instructions for YOU, it is totally a preference thing.....I will put them in this post too.  If you check out the link at the top of my blog that reads "Just 4 You" you will find instruction links to several different techniques.  I have used the adorable chick from the Verve new release set called Eggs-Stra Special, isn't he the cutest?  He is popping out of the paper pieced eggs, so sweet.  The little circle card makes it darling.  Be sure to check out the other mojo makers creations the gals are fabulous!

Circle Card Instructions
I have been asked how I make my circle cards, so I am going to list quick instructions. I am listing two different options
OPTION 1
-cut card stock using the largest circle or scalloped circle nesting label
-score one of the circles on Scor Pal on the first mark(1/2 inch mark) this will be the back part of the card
-decorate the top circle
-put glue on the part above the scored part of the bottom circle and adhere the decorated circle to the bottom
-be sure to line up as much as possible so that your card when free standing is straight

OPTION2
-run a piece of folded card stock through the cuttlebug with a small part exposed above the nesting label
-this option makes it so you do not have to glue, it is held together by the piece that is not cut

I hope this helps, if you need anything else please let me know.
