Merry Monday #72!

I had a Stampin' Up! workshop last night at Katie's and demo'd a Christmas card as one of my projects. Well, that Christmas card got me into the holiday mood even though we still have 4 months to go. I peeked over at "Merry Monday" to see what the sketch was for this week and decided to play along.

Here is the sketch:

And this is my card:

I decided to use the new "Circle Card Thinlits Die" to create my card. Once the cardstock is cut, the card becomes a "flip" card. You'll see more photo's below to see what I mean. Below is the front part of the circle that flips:

And once you open the card, the circle flips over to reveal the 2nd side of the circle:

This is the card once it is open so you can view all the panels:

And the panels from the other angle:

These cards are quite easy to complete. I decided to keep my sentiment on the inside so that the receiver gets to peek to see what is on the other side. I colored my Rhinestone Jewels with a red Permanent marker for the ornament and Rudolf's nose!

  • Stamps: Festive Flurry, Very Merry Tags, Ornament Keepsakes
