Happy Friday stampers! Can you believe that I made these cards in September and am finally posting them now?? Deckled Circle dies are really a fantastic addition to your stack. Do you know why? There are 14 of them and the largest one makes for a very lovely and large card, just shy of six inches!!

Read on to find out how I got these layers, it’s much easier than it looks.

Lots of Layers with Deckled Circle Dies

 

Stamp your image on a six inch square piece of very vanilla cardstock. Cut out by layering on three circle dies (second largest, fourth largest and sixth largest) Fold a piece of Early Espresso cardstock in half. Place the  largest circle die so that the top of it is beyond the fold line. You will see open space. Then run it through your die cutting machine. You will have a circular card base. Using the third and fifth largest dies, cut out Shaded Spruce circles.

Adhere your largest stamped circle on the Early Espresso card base, then the Shaded Spruce layer, then the next stamped circle….repeat. Embellish with some die cuts from Joy of Noel. I used some retired red glimmer paper for the holly berries.

For the inside of the card I just stamped part of the Graceful Deer image in Pecan Pie along the right edge. Making spirits bright was stamped in Real Red.

Video Tutorial

 

Watching the video is much easier that figuring out the written instructions. I had forgotten that I had a video for this otherwise I wouldn’t have written out the instructions. Is that lazy or is that smart? Which way of learning do you prefer?

 

How is your December going?

I try not to get into the Christmas countdown as it does stress me out a bit and for what reason?? It’s just silly. One day at a time and enjoy each one. I should make some lists so that I have things planned out, that really does make a difference. Are you organized like that? Any tips for me?
