Story Card Sunday: Simply Amazing

Woot! Woot!

Sunday means it is time for another installment in our Story Card Sunday blog series.


Today's Story Card pays tribute to the Olympics since so many us are watching the events unfold. Anyone have a favorite moment so far? It's the medal ceremonies for me. The tears pretty much start flowing the second they start.

Like many of the cards we feature on Story Card Sunday, this one would look great in a pocket-style scrapbook page. It'd also work well on a traditional page. If you are a card maker, you could use different words on it to make it more card-friendly.

So let's get started.


Start by cutting a base from white cardstock with our Story Card DIY Steel Dies.Scs_20_2

Now you are going to cut five circles from yellow, black, green, blue and red cardstocks. You are going to need the smallest two circles from our Circles steel dies and a small amount of decorative tape (or Painter's tape).

Set the circles down onto the first piece of cardstock like so. Place a piece of tape on top to hold the dies in place.


Run the dies through your die-cutting machine. Repeat this process to make five rings that look like this.


Now use your scissors to snip an opening in each ring.


Arrange the rings onto your base card, connecting them as you go.


Finish the Story Card off with a stamped sentiment. I used words from Technique Tuesday's College Ruled and Look At This stamp sets.


One of the neat things about the Look At This set is that it includes arrows you can add to your sentiment like I did. I like being able to add them because you can make the arrow go the direction you want it to go.

Your completed card should look something like this.



By the way, you can kick this card up a notch by adding a layer of Glossy Accents or glitter glue over the rings. It will make them really stand out!

I'll be back next week with another Story Card. Hope to see you then!



Love the Olympics! My family and I love sitting and watching every night. Great card to celebrate the event. :)

Simple card. Great story!

Love this idea! Great way to get the story of how I love watching the Olympics into my album! Thanks for the inspiration!

This is such fun!

super-cute card!! I can also see using it for a journaling card idea for my PL the past 2 weeks (with all the olympic tv-watching we're doing!)

This is quite nice....but why nt hide the cutting line behind a juncture of another circle?
