Fall to Layout #48- Take Two

Happy Sunday and Happy Christmas Eve!



I've got a circle card challenge for you today. Although if that's too intimidating for you, feel free to place it onto a square card instead.


Some basic dimensions:
Circle: approximately 4-3/4 in diamter
Circle-Left side:1-1/2
Circle-Right side: 3-1/4

Onto the card! Don't mind the slight tilt to the photo. Because I decided to do a standing shot instead of a flat lay style it rolled a bit to the one side.



This is one of those cards that just slowly came together. It started with the circle, of course. I chose my largest circle die and cut the base and then a layer in Smoky Slate and another layer in white. Next I decided on my repeated image element. It's not yet Christmas, so I might as well bring in one last Christmas card to share! I had a few of these Lawn Fawn light bulbs left from a different card project, so I thought, why not use them! I also had the string cut out and I thought that would be a fun element to use in place of the ribbon or vertical strip element.

I placed the string piece on my white cardstock and traced a line in pencil so I could cut it out to line up with the string piece. Because the light bulbs were coloured with Distress Oxide inks, I thought I would bring in some more for the background. I sponged it with Salty Ocean, and just a touch of Faded Jeans and spritzed some water. All in all, I think it is a really fun interpretation of the sketch!

Supplies:
Stamps: Hand Lettered Holiday (MFT)
Ink: Versafine- Black Onyx; Distress Oxide- Wild Honey, Candied Apple, Wild Clover, Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans
Paper: White, Silver, Smoky Slate, Black
Dies: String of Lights (Lawn Fawn), Circle dies

We've got Chera back this week! She also made a festive card featuring some snowflakes and one of my favorite holiday colour combos- white, light blue and red!


Happy Christmas Eve to you all!!! Hope you're all ready for this holiday season! 

It's not to often I make a circle card but I sure did enjoy making this one!! Almost looks like a Christmas ornament! I pulled out my Stampin’ Up! circle die set as that's the largest one I own to make the circle shapes!! Once the base was done I took the circle the next size down from the scallop and die cut it from the blue! The blue seemed a little boring so I clear stamped a background stamp just for some added details on it! I pulled out the Simon Says Stamp set, Christmas Cheer and die cut the snow flakes out and heat embossed them with some platinum embossing powder. Once that was done I added the red strip of cardstock popped up the snowflakes and added the sentiment! 

It was actually a pretty quick card to put together!!! I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
