Shaped Christmas Card Set

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with fun, festive, and handmade cards for the holidays! Everyone loves to make (and get) a handmade card in the mail, but during the holidays, our time is at a premium. Once again, We R Memory Keepers is bringing us a tool that saves time and makes us look good! The Circle Spin & Trim is a tool that makes creating circles of just about any size a snap! Smooth and easy to use, check out how I used it on these ornament cards.

Making these cards took so little time. And how cute are they? Not your everyday Christmas card, that is for sure!

The blades for the Circle Spin & Trim sit in the top of the tool. Love the on-board storage and the fact that there are two blades! To cut, one blade easily twists into the guides on the center of the tool. You can choose from so many different sizes!

After the blade is inserted, place your paper inside the Circle Spin & Trim. Firmly close the lid. See the piece that looks like a “Sorry” game board piece? It’s the handle. Simply turn the handle and it will cut your circle.

I cut out circles from green, red, aqua, and pink cardstock. Two for each card-for a front and back.

On one set of circles, I stamped and heat embossed the word joy. On the others, I added layers of stripes, created with white cardstock.

To make the ornament hanger, I trimmed silver glitter cardstock to size. (approximately 1” x 1”) I scored each piece of glitter cardstock in half, adhering one side to each piece of cardstock.

To have a place to “hang” the ornament from, I used my We R Memory Keepers Reinforcer Hole Punch. Punching the rings from the same silver glitter cardstock. Each ring was glued to the top, as shown.

On the inside of each card, I added another circle, one that was the next size smaller. Look at that perfect layering! Yay! The circle gave me a place to write some quick words.

After making these, I had so many more ideas! Wouldn’t it be cute to place a photo on the inside, above the writing? Oooh, and these would make adorable tags on Christmas gifts. Or just to use as ornaments themselves! What will you make with your Circle Spin & Trim?
