Snowflakes & Circles Merry Christmas Card - 52 {C}CT Oct Sketch Challenge

It's time for a sketch at 52 {C}CT this week - and it's a really fun layout for your festive cards so I hope you'll play along!


I used some favourite double sided patterned paper for my card and made my 5 3/4" square card base from Not Quite Navy CS.  I glued the snowflake patterned side of the paper to the card and popped up the green side over the top after using Nestie dies to cut out 6 circle shapes.   I didn't plan for that green snowflake to be in the centre of the small circle in the middle, it just ended up like that - isn't it nice when that happens?!  I punched some Not Quite Navy CS circles and added some punched snowflakes with rhinestone centres.  I stamped the circle sentiment and then punched 4 snowflakes to go on the green layer.  I've added sparkly silver glitter dots to the centre of those snowflakes.


Here's the inside and envelope - you can see I kept the circles theme going!


The other DT members will have some fab cards on their blogs - and we have guest DT member Birgit joining us for October as well - so lots to inspire you!  Please check out the challenge post and then get inky to create a card using this great sketch, I'm looking forward to seeing what you make!

Hi Ruth - this is just gorgeous! I love the blue and green color scheme and the depth of the entire card due to your cutout circles and paper behind. Quite lovely!
