These split circle cards are so much fun to make and can be made in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes. We made these recently in my weekly Zoom Class. (This class is free and open to anyone who would like to make cards with a friendly group of creatives. We meet Tuesdays at 6:30 pm ET. All details can be found on Monday afternoon on my FaceBook Page: ChatnCraft with Lorraine. Links are below for FB or to email me for more info.)
LET’S GET STARTED
To make this card you will need circles in 3 different sizes and colors. Cut a large and a small circle from two of the colors and two medium circles from the third color as shown in the photo. I used the 3rd, 4th, and 5th largest circles in the Stylish Shapes dies to make my circles.
Then cut each of the circles in half. After cutting them in half, set aside 1/2 of each of the large and small circles and 2 halves (one complete circle) of the medium circles. They will make a second card exactly like this one.
Making sure you have 1 of each color in each pile, stack a large circle, a medium circle and a small circle- in a different color than the large one. Then arrange your circles as shown in the picture below.
Notice that the pile on the right has the circles lined up on the outside or right hand edge and the circles on the left are lined up on the outside or left hand edge. The swirl will not look right if you mix up this orientation.
As you can see in the photo, the circles are also in two different orientations. The ones on the right have the curve at the top while the ones on the left have the curve on the bottom.
When you adhere these on to a 5 1/4″ x 4″ card mat, leave about 1/4″ space in between. Your sentiment strip will cover the gap. Stamp your sentiment on a 1/2″ by 4 1/2″ strip. The “Happy Birthday” in the photo above is from the Artistically Inked stamp set. Use dimensionals to attach it between the two circles. Next, adhere this to a card base cut * 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″. Add some bling and you are done.
NOTE: On several cards, I embossed the Basic White card mat. I used Timeworn Type and the Gingham Embossing folder with good results with each.
I had some left over circles after class and created this card while just playing around with them.
What colors will you choose to make your card? They are so much fun! I bet you can’t make just one!
