Mojo Monday/MOJO243-Thanks A Bunch

Good morning mojo fans, it is circle or square week at the Mojo Monday Blog.  I hope you will join us in the fun and create something.  If you have never tried a circle card, I challenge you to try it, they are the sweetest and so much fun to make!  I normally use the largest scalloped circle nestie for my base, it is approx. 4 1/4" at the widest part, the same size as a regular A2 card.  I am including the instructions below to help get you started.  I use option #1, I like for the card to be a complete circle when you look at it from the front.  I have played along with the CR84FN color challenge.  I hope your Memorial Day is a blessing....I want to thank each and every person who has served and is serving in our Armed Forces...THANK YOU!  May you have a blessed and honorable day...enjoy!

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 BIG Shot 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.

Pin It!
