Hello card using a circle negative (tutorial)


Well Hello my bloggity friends!!!!! I cannot express how much I miss all of you! Thank you so much for your support, I am not better yet for the hives made their way back but I am hanging in there. When I start posting every day you will know I am on the mend.

Last night I gained enough energy to make a card, the ideas that have been running through my mind since I have been forced to take a break are endless! Maybe it's a good thing to take a break!

I seen a video on how to make a trellis out of corrugated cardboard and had to try it, you can find the tutorial here.  I used potpourri on my trellis!!!!, smells so nice!

The background was my own idea, here are the basics of this card ( and how to make the circle layered effect)
  • Make your card 5" by 5" (I used blue cardstock)
  • Cut a piece of pink card 1/4 " smaller for a mat 
  • Cut a piece of pattern card , again 1/4" smaller
  • Cut a piece of white card 1/4" smaller
Layer the pink paper and pattern paper on top of your blue card

Now with the white card you will cut out a 4 1/4" circle , place the circle aside, you will be using the negative.

What I did next was cut out 8 more circles the same size as the white, 41/4" and layered them all as seen in the picture, I glued each one together and place them underneathe the white negative piece starting from the lower right corner. The circles will extend over the right top side and you will have to trim once you have postiioned it the way you like, now attach to your card!
The rest is up to you!




Please remember me in your prayers!!
