Used the Wave Die on several of the album cards.

Cut a smaller circles one for the inside and one for the top of the card.

Used a die set from my stash. For the larger layer I traced around the outer edge of the die and cut it out. The base is a basic easel card. This one is 6″×8″ scored on the 6″ side at 2 and 4 inches. The largest background was taped to the base. Then I folded the smaller piece in half, taped it to it’s layer then folded it again. Only tape the center fold and adhere it in the center of the card. Do this for each layer/page.
