Circles: Circle Cards Two Ways

I usually work in squares and rectangles when it comes to crafting cards, so I had a lot of fun playing with circles this time around! I used circles in two ways, both courtesy of my Silhouette machine:

First, I cut Silhouette design #31873 from white cardstock. I used a 1 1/4″ circle punch to punch circles from a Fancy Free patterned paper.

I snipped one edge of each circle off to fill the in between spaces and took a few minutes with my adhesive to get everything in place. I love how the Fancy Free paper just pops from the negative spaces!

My second card (design #35434) is a simple circle hinged on one side. I created the sentiment by adhering a 4×6 card to the front and trimming off the excess.

For some extra fun, I added pom pom trim. The dangling pom poms add another circular element to the card along with some whimsy.

While it’s hip to be square, circles are just so pretty! Give the circle a try when you make your next set of cards. I’m sure you’ll come ’round to the idea when you see the beautiful results!
