Flourishes Christmas Spirit Challenge this month was to make your card Round as a Wreath. Here is my card. I used 12"x12" Baja Breeze paper folded in half. Then I cut the paper using Spellbinders 'Grand Scallop Circle' and laying the fold inside the cut line so it would be a folded circle not 2 circles. I used BoBunny paper collection called "Snowy Serenade" for the rest. I cut out Snow Serenade 'Sparkles' using 4th largest Scallop and 'Winter Night' using the 3rd largest die from the Grand Scallop Circles.
I stamped Snowman from the set called Warm Winter Wishes by Flourishes using Black Crafters ink by Clearsnap and embossed using clear EP on shimmery white paper by Stampin'Up. I then colored Snowman using watercolor pencils and dye based markers. I cut it out by using Spellbinders 'Lacey Circles' I cut out a frame using BoBunny Paper 'Snowy Serenade 'Prelude Die Cut' using a larger 'Lacey Circle' I added Glitter Ritz glitter using White for the snow and cool highlights for the snowman from In The Making Enterprises. I stamped sentiment using the same set and using Black Crafters ink by Clearsnap and embossed using clear EP. Cut the tag out by using Spellbinders Fancy Tag #1. I punched 2 - 1/8th circles using a hand held punch at the top so I could use Silver Ribbon by May Arts and tie a bow. Using glue dots I placed the ribbon down along the sides leaving some ribbon showing. I then punched out different snowflakes using Stampin'Up big Snowflake and the smaller snowflakes I used Martha Stewarts using BoBunny's 'Snowy Serenade' and Silver glitter paper by Best Creations.
