Geometry Plus

This card will be entered into the Shopping our Stash and Wobble Wednesday's  challenges.  The SOS challenge is to make a card for a male or use masculine colors.  The WW challenge is to use 3 circles.  I made this for a fellow teacher who was recently named our schools math teacher of the year.  He teaches geometry so I focused on that with the circles.  The puzzle pieces represent the pieces of a geometric proof that need to be put together to get an answer.  Nerdy, I know, but that's what we do in math:-)  The paper is from the Naturals mat stack from DCWV.  I've had this stack for over a year and it's my go-to stack for guy cards.  I love the browns and coppers in the stack.  The brads are from JoAnn's.  Ours went out of business and moved to a different county at least 4 years ago.  The stamp is from My Pink Stamper.  I used the stitched circle die from My Creative Time (Emma).  This was the first time I used it and was pleasantly surprised.  It's so thin I thought I would have a difficult time cutting with it, but not so, it cut beautifully!  I'm glad I made the investment.  This is an A2 size card.  The puzzle circle is on an Action Wobble.
