25 Days of Christmas (Day 4)

Hi Again!

I'm back again with another Christmas card inspired by Kristina Werner's Holiday Card Series. This one is from Day 4. At first, I wasn't going to do this one, as I'm not a big fan of doing the longer cards. I am glad I decided to do it though because it actually turned out to be one of my most favorite cards. I started with a piece of Blueberry Sky from PTI. I embossed it with Versa Mark and clear embossing powder, using the Inkadinkado Polka Dot background stamp. I know I've been using that stamp a lot; but I just love it!! So, I'm sorry to say you will see it again. I adhered it to a white card base measuring 3 1/2 x 9. I cut the circle out in the center. I used my cricut to cut the thin grey framed circle. I tried to do it the way Kristina did in her video; but I just couldn't, so I decided to stop wasting paper and go the easy way!
The snowman in the middle is from the same pack of Martha Stewart Stickers that I used in my Day 1 card. I stamped the sentiment from a set I got from Michael's with Charcoal Grey Color Box Chalk ink. For a bit of sparkle I ran a bit of blue stickles around the outline of the sentiment. Like I said, I was quite pleased with the final product. Have a great day!
