Punched Circle Design

Good Afternoon! I've been having fun creating cards with punched designs. I created another card on Card Inspired with a similar design. I don't know if you're familiar with my other blog site but Card Inspired is where I post my "paper crafting" cards and projects meaning no rubber stamping. I mainly use card stock, designer paper, and scrapbook embellishments for cards created on Card Inspired.

Stampin Inspirations is where I post my "stamping" projects. Anyway, I designed this card using punched circles and mounting them with foam tape. I also used textured cardstock so the design stands out better.

I'm really having a lot of fun creating this sort of design. It's a simple design but nonetheless, I think it has a lot of character. I've been trying to come up with cards that are simple in its overall design.


I tend to make a lot of cards with busy layouts and I've been trying to come up with designs that are not my "typical" busy cards.

I like both simple and busy cards but I have a harder time with simple designs. I always feel I have to add more stuff to it but I'm trying to "stop" myself from having the need to pile things on to my cards.

Card Details:

Stamps: SU Riveting
Paper: DCWV embossed cardstock, DCWV textured cardstock, K&Co designer paper
Ink: Black Ink
Accessories: 1" circle punch, Basic Basic Ribbon, Card Creations rhinestone flower
