Metal circles

Just a quick one tonight.

The 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge for the week is to use metal embellishments.

I don't have a lot, but a rootle through my upstairs craft cupboard turned up a metal snowflake and a candy cane. I went with the snowflake.

I teamed it with design papers in shades of blue, from a pack from Anita's Craft. The circles were die cut - another circle card this month!

I added white glitter to the third layer, for a bit of interest. The square base layer is edged in navy sharpie - using the trick I learnt at last weekend's workshop, to make it look like an extra layer without using another sheet of card.

Finally a navy ribbon to suspend the metal snowflake, and a triple bow to embellish.

Very simple and quick this week! The end of the month means lots of deadlines so I have other projects I need to complete by tomorrow!


  1. Very stylish card, Lucinda! Thanks for joining us at 52CCT, April x
