Happy Sunday! I have lots of projects ready to share with you this week. Today, I want to share some mini Christmas cards I created based on sketch 26 over at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge blog. When I saw that the sketch required a circle shape, I thought it would be too challenging. I'm so glad I ended up playing along - creating a circle shaped card was easier than I thought. So easy, I decided to create a few of them to accompany some Christmas gifts I will be giving away.
Aren't these cards too cute? I used a large 3" scalloped punch and cut out two pieces. I scored the back piece along the top to create the card's fold and adhered the two pieces together at the fold. Next, I cut out a smaller 2.5" circle with my Spellbinder die cut and embossed the edge. Last, I used an even smaller circle punch to cut out my patterned paper from The Girl's Paperie. The paper was double-sided, so I simply cut the circle in half and flipped one side over.
For the embellishment, I chose that cute little wreath stamp from Lawn Fawn and colored it with my Copic markers. I adhered to my card with foam tape, added some red pearls and some baker's twine around the top of the card.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment from the same Lawn Fawn stamp set. I finished the inside of the card by staining it with Antique Linen Distress Ink. I just love how these turned out! They are so small but the perfect size to adhere to a gift bag this Christmas season!
