Hi, friends, Chark here today. I needed a baby shower card so after checking Pinterest for ideas, I decided to make a baby carriage circle-shaped card. You can use the Hero Arts Circle Infinity Dies to make this card. I used the smaller circles for the wheels and the Ornaments Infinity dies for the large circle.
If you use the circles, when you die cut your folded cardstock, make sure the edge of the die is offset from the paper when you run it through your die cut machine. You’ll see the folded edge of the paper doesn’t come all the way to the edge of the die, so it won’t get cut through right there and you’ll have a card that opens. But only do a small bit (unlike the picture) so your card is mostly round.
If you use the largest of the Ornaments Infinity dies, all you do is leave the hanger of the ornament die off the edge and your card will be attached there.
- I die cut one folded piece for the card and then ran it through with an embossing folder. I die cut another one and used that for the inside of the card for writing that wasn’t embossed. You’ll need to cut a shape out to make the carriage opening. It’ll look like Pac Man at this point 🙂
- I die cut 4 smaller circles for the wheels and attached 2 to the front of the card and 2 to the back of the card, now it stands up on the wheels when opened.
- To the front, I added pink buttons and pink border punched paper and added flowers and a bow and pearls. You can decorate this however you want.
The infinity dies are so versatile, especially the round ones. I made some snowman cards here if you want to see those.
