Floating Circle Card

When you have thin strips of Designer Series Paper you don’t want to throw away, just glue them to a window sheet and die cut a “floating circle”! Want to see more? Watch my Facebook Live video from 10/17/22 and see how easy this card was to create!

We stampers love a little shine and shimmer, and that’s just what you’ll get in the Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper pack…this angle shows how each double-sided paper has one metallic side and one pretty printed side, and you really can’t bear to let any go to waste:

Pick a small sentiment to stamp on one of your non-metallic strips. Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals are easy to hide behind the strips, and lift your circle off the card to make it look like it’s floating! Add a floral image and you have a simply sensational card.

While this DSP was created to coordinate stunningly with the Splendid Thoughts bundle (see my original card below the supply list), I used the Sending Smiles bundle for my video demonstration – the sentiments in the Sending Smiles stamps fit on the strips perfectly.

This is one to try immediately in your stamp studio!

For the Guys: Floating Element Card

When you need to make a BIG DEAL out of a celebration for a man in your life, you need to make a BIG CARD. This large slimline card fits into a legal size envelope. Even more cool are the hats and stars that seem suspended just above the card, and to make it is easy!

There is a .pdf tutorial for you to print and follow, but basically, you will create a panel and attach all your die cut images with dimensionals, then cut off all the pieces that hang over the edges of the panel before attaching it to your card.

Don’t limit yourself to the colors I used: Choose a palette that matches your man’s personality, then try this technique with any other die cut images and sizes of cards!
