Circle Flip card variation with instructions

I just made another circle flip card but I did this one slightly different

to make a card you will need
cutting mat
bone scorer
d/s tape
either 3 circle dies or a compass ( I used spellbinder dies they cut out circles approx. 7.7cm, 7.2cm and 6.5cm)
2 different colours of card
patterned paper
 score board (optional)
If you wish to do decoupage flowers on them like I did then you will also need
A decoupage sheet with flowers (or other pattern if you wish)
silicone or mounting foam
The syringe in the picture is what I use to apply the silicone( I purchase them from the chemist, they are real cheap)

Take the largest die and from a piece of scrap card die cut a circle, fold it in half and set aside for later.
Cut out your decoupage and set aside for later. ( I like to do this now as it usually takes me the longest)
Cut out a piece of card 16.5cm x 11.5cm

Using a pencil and ruler measure from the left side 7cm top and bottom and draw a line. and do the same from the right side.
From the top of the card measure down 2cm on the left hand line and put a small dot.

Now using the circle you previously die cut, place the fold on the circle on the line on the left with the top of the circle touching the dot and trace around the circle.

Using your knife and cutting mat cut around the circle being careful not to cut in between the 2 lines, score and fold the 2 lines being careful not to score inside the circle. Then erase all pencil lines.

With 2nd piece of card cut out 2 pieces measuring 7cm x 11cm and
with the patterned paper cut out  2 pieces measuring 7cm x 10cm
adhere the patterned paper to the card pieces.

(I thought I took a photo of this whilst I was doing it, I hope you can still see what I mean)
Lay card base flat, place the card /paper layer on the card in the position you wish to attach it, Using the large circle die cut you used previously, line up the fold and with a pencil trace around the edge on both pieces.

cut with scissors and erase any pencil lines

attach to card base with d/s tape

Using your 2nd piece of card cut  2 circles using the 2nd largest die.
Using the smallest die an a piece of the same card you used for the card base cut out 1 circle.

attach the 2 larger ones to your card

On the smaller circle stamp a sentiment ( I use the misti because the stamp I want to use never stamps perfectly the first time)

adhere to card


Use silicone to add your flower..

and your card is finished
