Perfect Circles for a Sweet Friend Card

Stampin Up Thoughtful Banners Card Idea - Mary Fish Stampinup

Today’s friend card takes advantage of the Stampin’ Up! Layering Circles Framelits Dies (and a Big Shot), the easy peasy way to create perfect circles (up to 16 sizes)!  Mix circles of different sizes with stamped images and pretty paper for a quick ride to WOW!  The Layerings Circles Framelits Dies made the list of My Favorite Things!  Today’s friend card was created by my Stampin’ Pretty Design Team.  

I love hearing from you!  Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.

  1. I really love this card. It is simple yet the colors draw you in. I love how you echo the circle colors in the borders (or is that border colors in the circles). I always enjoy viewing your work.

  2. I always appreciate your sweet comments, Maria. SU designer series paper makes it pretty easy to find coordinating patterns to mix and match. Let your imagination soar!

  3. Hello Mary: I’m sorry I’m a day late telling you I love this beautiful card, the combination of patterns and color of this circles and the way you arranged them really is fantastic. You have a gift when it comes to combining papers like this, I have such a hard time doing this, I can’t come up with this designs but, when I see them like in this beautiful card, they make total sense to me.
    Thank you for sharing.

  4. I love your use of the circles here Mary!

  5. I love this card Mary. Circles are fun and you did it well! TFS Colors are the best!

  6. Love your color collection MsMary, circle are perfect
    Hugs Frenchie,

  7. Love this card Mary. The layout is perfect. I am wondering…..remember the old SU set called Circle Circus? I still have it, and can’t part with it because it’s just too cool. I wonder if these circle framelits would fit any of those stamps? I don’t yet have the framelit set, and I know we demos can only use new things, but still, it’s a thought. Love the colors of your card too. Very cool and spiffy!

    • Hi Bobbi: I no longer have Circle Circus. However, with 16 sizes of circles from approx. 1 1/8″ to 3 5/16″ in the Layering Circles Dies (note that half are scallop circles), there are lots of options.
