2013 Christmas Card

 I knew I wanted to use the circle card thinlit for my holiday card this year and the Season of Style DSP paperstack had the perfect paper for it - love the candy stripes.  Unfortunately it was backordered until Jan 14th and I only had a small stack left from my workshops to make do so there were some variations on this card.  But here it is.  I adhered the stripe paper strip on the left side only on a 5 1/2x 8 1/2 Cherry Cobbler CS, ran it through the Bigshot with the framelit die to cut the circle and create a flip on the right side.

This is another variation on the card with the Santa with the red Dazzling details on the suit to add sparkle. 
 Both  cards had a stip of silver 1/8 inch ribbon.
The snowflake front has the larger snowflake stamped in Cherry cobbler embellished the red Dazzling details on the tips and a jewel in the center (although hard to see and missing from the snowflake sample above- Jeez!).  The snowflake in front was stamped with cherry onto white CS then diecut with coordinating snowflake die.  It was placed, snowflake stamped side down onto Big shot multipurpose adhesive sheets then placed onto dazzling diamond glitter to adhere it as shown with a dimensional.

 I agonize over the choice of picture to include in the card every year- something without someone's eyes crossed or something.  I dug this picture up from our trip to Florida to visit my parents when we waited 2 1/2 hours in line to ride the new Harry Potter ride at Universal but at least everyone is looking forward for once.

Happy Holidays to you all!
