Casing pg 139 in the Annual Catalog

Sue Erickson
This week’s design challenge is to CASE pg 130 in the Annual Catalog. I got the idea from someone on Facebook who created a similar arrangement of dsp on a card. To help you all with the challenge, here are some directions. Of course you are free to interpret the design in any way you want.

Use the smallest Layering Circles die ti cut out a number of circles from dsp
Place the edge of the circle on the 7/8” mark on the Trimmer and score it
Rotate the circle 1/4 turn clockwise again putting the edge of the circle on the 7/8” mark making sure the first score line in parallel to the top rail of the trimmer. Then score.
Repeat turning the circle clockwise, keeping the score line parallel, and scoring two more times.
Fold the edges to the center of the circle on the score lines and burnish well with bone folder.
Arrange circles as desired and adhere down. I used glue dots. If you use a larger circle, you will have to adjust the depth of the score lines
Hint: Since the clear bar on the trimmer is fairly wide and it is difficult to hold small pieces in place to score or cut, put a small amount of seal on the trimmer near the cutting groove to temporarily hold the paper in place. This saves a lot of frustration and there isn’t enough seal to hinder picking up the paper when you are through scoring or trimming.

I used the cute Penguin Playmates dsp for my card. The greeting comes from the Christmas to Remember stamp set.
