I apologize for my peeping gnome. Fractured circle technique cards have been popping up all over. And I thought I would try my hand at a simple version of the card. I like a modern geometric card and creating with Artistry Blooms DSP is an absolute joy.

Here is the card. This version only uses 3 layers.

This is another easy card with a fun twist.

CREATING PIECES & PARTS

The Circle

Die-cut each of the circles using the Layering Circle dies. Then use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the layers. Cut circle in half through all 3 layers.

Gnome

You know the drill. The only difference this time is that you should ink up the stamp using a Night of Navy Stampin’ Marker and omit the snowflakes and bell. Stamp and fussy cut.

Sentiment

Stamp the sentiment from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set with white craft ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder. Then layer with Night of Navy frame.

ASSEMBLY

  • Assemble as shown.
  • Use coordinating DSP for the envelope flap.
  • Layer the message insert pieces.

Wasn’t that a fun simple modern geometric card? You could leave out the peeping gnome and it would be just as fun. This is an awesome card for your teenager or college student. Tomorrow we get a little fancier by adding flowers.
