Make It Round so lots of scope to think outside the box for this one.
I had a rootle round in my used christmas card stash and found this card front that had a nice circle design. I first cut the circle out leaving the card front intact. Using blue card stock I made a base card up and carefully adhered the circle to the front of the card. I had some pieces of snowy acetate in my stash so used a bit to adhere to the back of the hole in the card and then used 3d pads to then stick this over the circle already attached. The snowflakes were purchased die cuts which came in a huge packet of assorted shapes, colours and sizes. I used a finger dauber to add some blue colour to some of the white ones and then layered a few together and blinged them up with blue crystal gems and silver glitter glue.
You can just about see the 3D effect.
My next card uses freebie paper from Making Cards Dec 2015 called ' Traditional Christmas' by Hunkydory. I had another rootle around in my stash and found this Circle Swing Base Card and decided to use the paper along with some red card stock to cover all the sides of the card. Bad mistake as it took for ever and a day to to cut and piece it together . It looks good now its finished but a quick job it wasn't! Do I ever learn.
There was one sheet with the large design on it and then another sheet had smaller designs set into circles along with some sentiments.
You can see the card fully extended here and below is the back of the card showing the reverse of the swing circle just to prove I did indeed cover it all. I have used some more of the snowflakes but this time I used red ink on the dauber and a pearl in the centre along with the silver glue.
I'm slowly getting round to all your blogs so if I haven't been seen for a while I'll be with you soon.
