Fancy Fold Friday – Extended Thinlit Circle Card

I have previously used this Thinlit Circle Card die for a Fancy Fold Friday, but this time I’ve made a small alteration – creating an extended flap on one end.

Stampin' Up! UK Thinlit Circle Card extended Painted Petals

I love the Painted Petals Stamp set and Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper. I just think its great that you can look like a watercolour expert, just using a couple of stamps!

The Painted Blooms DSP features some lovely colours, but the colour that stood out on this piece was Blackberry Bliss and so I selected Blackberry Bliss cardstock as my card base.

The secret to making this card successfully is cutting your cardstock, the die creates a card that is 5 1/2″ tall, so your cardstock should be cut a hair shorter to ensure that it passes through the die allowing you to cut part of the die, leaving the trailing edge to create the extended portion.


Cardstock = 8 1/4 x 5 3/8

Insert your cardstock through the die, leaving one edge of the cardstock above the die when laid on your acrylic plate. Fold the extended side into the card, lining the edge up with the circle cut out in the centre.

Cut a 6×6″ piece of DSP with the die. Trim around all  4 edges, and cut along the score lines left by the die. Trim the larger piece to 2″ wide.

Whisper White piece for the insert measures 2 x 5″, cut a scallop circle from Whisper White using the Scallop Circle die from the die set.
