To create the folded circle element used on two of the cards, die cut several circles from double sided paper and use a square of cardboard or metal die as a template to fold the edges of the circle up, creating a square shape.



1. Use iCraft tape to adhere the background papers together.

Alice-Golden-Authentique-Therm-O-Web-Cards-32. Use a mini tape runner to apply adhesive to the crotched trim; tuck ends behind paper.

Alice-Golden-Authentique-Therm-O-Web-Cards-43. Apply strips of iCraft tape on the front of the card – these will be used to hold the folded circle elements in place.



4. Remove the liner from the iCraft and adhere the folded circles to the card, beginning in the center.


5. Use iCraft tape to adhere the papers to the card front.


6. Adhere a 3D Zot to the back of a vintage button.



7. Use a foam square to keep the stamped tag in place.


8. Tie thin ribbon through the button and secure the strings on the tag.




Here is the view straight on:



Create a second card using leftover folded circles on top of a die cut scalloped circle.





The last card uses foam adhesive to give dimension to die cut pieces.



When cutting intricate shapes, cover the paper with an iCraft sheet first and then die cut as usual. Peel off the backing and viola!


iCraft tape was used on the file folder tab element and to attach the paper under the folded corner.

    I have a Stampin’ Up punch that would make those little windows. Never thought about using it like these cards. Thanks for sharing.
