Sparkly sketchy circles
After two weeks off from the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge, I'm back with two entries, as I really like the sketch this week.
The first is a sparkly number, inspired by the style of Chloe Endean of Chloe's Creative Cards (although not nearly as sparkly as hers!).
I used white vellum, cutting a large and small circle with dies to start. The large one I stamped with the small snowflakes from the Clarity snowflake set, in watermark ink, then heat embossed with Totally Teal Wow embossing powder. I also added dots around the edge with a versa mark pen, and embossed them.
The small one I edged with the versa mark pen, and embossed it as well.
I stamped two of the large snowflakes from the set onto vellum, and embossed in the same powder, and cut them out. One I cut into, removing some of the "arms" so I could fold the rest up for dimension.
The last part was a circle of hint of silver centura pearl card, which I mounted the small vellum circle and the large snowflakes onto, with a small gem in the middle.
I attached this and the large circle to a 6x6 card base (cut down to fit the large circle exactly) using glue dots, hidden under the snowflakes so they don't show through the vellum.
As I covered the whole circle in snowflakes, this card has an interested back too, which I like.
