This card was inspired by a SplitCoastStampers CAS challenge from a few months back, but somehow I just never got around to posting the card. I love how the geometric squares in this card are softened by the ribbons, and by rounding off the corners.
I have always loved the look of large rounded corners, but thought I couldn’t make them because I couldn’t find a giant corner rounder. Silly Me! I just recently figured out how to make rounded corners of all different sizes using my circle punches and circle cutters to create cutting templates. Here’s how I did it:
Tips and Tricks – Giant Rounded Corners (Including nested rounded corners)
- Punch or cut a circle from scrap cardstock.
- If you want to nest two corners – i.e. a smaller corner tucked inside a larger one – punch two circles of different sizes.
- Your border will be half the difference in the hight of the circles. In the photo below, there is a quarter of an inch difference in the hight of my circles, so my border is an eight of an inch.
- On the back side of your cardstock, line up your circles with the edges of the corner you want to cut, and trace around them.
- Fussy cut along the line with a pair of sharp scissors.
