Circular Abstract Art Inspiration by Cheiron

Hello there crafty friends! It's Cheiron here and today I am playing around with an idea inspired by abstract art I saw on Instagram by 

I thought it would be a fun thing to try with the Circular dies. I am always looking for ways to stretch my dies and use them to make something a bit different. To make my card, I cut four panels of cardstock in white, yellows and blues to 4 x 5 1/4 and also selected a contrasting color for the background and cut it the same size. I cut each panel (starting with the one that would go on the bottom) with the Circular dies placing the circle dies down on my panel, running them through my die cut machine and repeating until I cut circles out of the entire panel.

For each layer I cut, I looked at the previous layer (putting it underneath the new piece and holding it up to the light helps) and places the circles so that my openings would show additional layers underneath and the holes overlapped. It takes a little time, but it was a fun process for me.

When all the layers were cut, I added tiny pieces of foam tape behind the layers and stacked them on top of each other. I backed the stacked panel with the constrasting orange panel for some pop and adhered the entire panel onto a white notecard. The sentiment is from the Paper Cut Flower set (which is on sale now) and it seemed like the perfect sentiment to go with this one of a kind card.

I love that you can switch up the colors and make this type of card for any occasion just by changing the cardstock.



  1. I SO love this and it is terrific that you found this inspiration. I am a huge fan of mid-century modern design - my house is full of it. And this, to me, looks like mid-century classic. Even the great colors. I am mesmerized by this card. You've done it again, girlfriend!! Thanks for sharing!
