What better way to show your love than through hugs and kisses?  Send some love and kisses to your Valentine this year with this fun circular side step card.

Read the Directions After the Jump…

The first step you will need to do is cut a 6” circle from hot pink card stock (12 x 12 Super Value Pack) using a circle cutter and glass mat.

Half Circle

Divide the circle in half by drawing a line across the center and then on that line mark ½” to the right of the center as shown in the picture.  Rotate the circle so that the center line is vertical and lightly draw a line from left to right at the ½” mark so that you will have a guide for an upcoming step.

Score Circle

Place the circle on your scoring board (Martha Stewart) with the center line facing up and down.  Score from the top edge of the circle down to where you made the mark in the previous step.

Rotate Paper

Rotate the paper 90 degrees so that the line at the ½” mark runs from left to right.  Line the right edge of the circle up to the 6” score line.  Score 1” in from the circle’s edge.

 

Score 2

Now, score 2” from the right side of the circle as shown in the picture.

Score 3

Score 1” to the left of the center line.

Circle Example

Place the circle in the paper trimmer (Tonic V Blade) lining the first score line (first score line from the right) at the 1” mark on the trimmer arm and cut down to the last score line you created (the one on the left of the center mark).

Trimmed Circle

This is what your circle should look like at this point after you have completed the previous steps.

 Fold at Score Lines

Fold at the score lines as follows:  The first score line is folded upward (mountain fold), the next line is downward (valley fold) and the last one is folded upward.  This photo is the back side of the card.  See how the folds created a flap.  Next, using a pair of scissors, round this flap piece to match the rounded edges of the circle.

 Trace the Card

Trace the front of the card onto the back side of a piece of patterned paper (Bo Bunny Smoochables: Lips pattern) and cut it out.  Adhere it to the card base using a tape runner.  I like to leave a little edge of the card stock showing for added dimension so I cut the paper a little smaller than the actual size.  Also, cut a piece for the side step on the right side.

Die cut (Spellbinders Grand Calibur) the frame using the Picot Edges Die from purple card stock and cut a white circle (8 ½” x 11” Super Value Pack) using third smaller circle from the Large Circles Die.  Also, die cut a circle using the second to smallest die and lay aside for use later.  Die cut the rectangle shape from the Frame 1 by Spellbinders die and lay it aside for later.

Circle Lips

Stamp lips onto the circle in pink ink.

Purple Lips

Stamp one set of lips in the center using purple ink.

Adhere the circle onto the picot frame using a tape runner and then adhere it to the card base making sure that it extends above the top edge.

Love Stamp

Stamp the word “love” onto the rectangle piece that you die cut earlier in green ink and the word “you” onto the circle in pink using the Martha Stewart Custom Stamp Setting Kit.  Ink the edges of the rectangle piece in pink and ink the circle’s edges in green.

Adhere them onto the side steps using the tape runner making sure the tops sit above the card edges.

Your card is ready to share with the one you love this Valentine’s Day or any day that you just want to send some love and kisses.  Hugs will be included!

She was an elementary school teacher turned stay at home mom, and later a home school mom. Over the years, she designed cakes on the side and went to school to become a certified chocolatier. She always has loved to craft since she was young and it was something that she wanted to be doing, but set it aside due to her busy life. After 15 years of doing cakes she decided it was time to stop and focus more on her family. She began doing layouts, then cards and it went from there. Before she knew it, next to spending time with her family, she spent every free moment creating something and blogging about it. One thing led to another and here she is today!
