Coluzzle fun, part 2 - The tutorial!

I have made a few projects lately that all utilized the Coluzzle Cutting System. It's by Provocraft, but we also carry it in our TAC catalog along with a limited number of templates. Anyway, I have just been on a Coluzzle kick lately! I'll be sharing these projects with you over the next week or so. Stayed tuned!

In the meantime, here is the tutorial for the last card I posted. I'm calling it "Coluzzle Card". Not very creative on the name, I know! LOL!

Coluzzle Card
By Vicki Hook

5 1/2” x 8 1/2” cardstock, for base
Coluzzle Cutting System with circle template
Large circle punches (OPTIONAL)
Marvy Giga Scalloped Circle Punch (OPTIONAL)
Scraps of cardstock for various sizes of circles
TAC stamp set: Circle Sampler
Ink, Adhesive, Scissors, Embellishments

1. Score and fold the 5 1/2” x 8 1/2” cardstock in half, forming a 5 1/2” x 4 1/4” card base.
2. Open it back up so that you’re only cutting through the FRONT layer. Center your Coluzzle circle template over the front of the card.
3. Using the “4th from center” cutting line, cut ONLY THE RIGHT HALF of the circle. See my "very amatuer" diagram above.
4. Now fold the card front in half back toward you. The half circle you just cut will remain unfolded.
5. Cut various sizes of circles from your cardstock scraps using your Coluzzle template or large circle punches. (I like to use the Marvy Giga Scallop punch for a scalloped layer too but you don’t have to.)
6. Stamp your background, if desired.
7. Stamp the smallest circle for your front image
8. Stamp another circle for your inside image. The inside image circle should be one size bigger than the half circle you cut in step #3. So use the “5th from center” cutting line on your template.
9. Now adhere your circles, either to the front of the card or on the inside. As you adhere the biggest circle on the inside, be sure it is centered behind your half circle on the card front. I like to use glue for this so I have a few seconds to move it as needed before it is set.
