Whew, I am just cranking out those Christmas cards thanks to the Moxie Fab World challenges this week. I love all the different challenges Cath has posed to us in these challenges. Here is the link if you want to join in the fun:

Now on with my card. If you click on the picture, you can see it up close for details. I started with a 5 1/2" square card made from textured white cardstock(DCWV). I ran it through my Big Shot with the Cuddlebug Snowflakes embossing folder. I had to run it through twice since the card was bigger than the folder. Next, I used my Wizard and circle Nesties to die cut my circles. The bigger circle is solid cardstock from DCWV and the smaller circle is from patterned paper from K & Co.'s Brenda Walton Peppermint Twist mat pad. I nested the circles and attached them to the right side of the card with a little bit hanging off. I trimmed off the part hanging off the card. Then I cut a strip of patterned paper (also from K & Co. same pad) and used a snowflake corner punch to embellish the end a little bit. I attached this on the bottom of the circles as shown. The next step was to add the "peace" sticker from daisyd's cardstock stickers, overlapping the strip and the circles. I then attached the snowgirl sticker(Provo Craft Stand-outs by Christina Cole) as seen above. I decided it needed a little something more so I added the faux stitch and trim lines on the smaller circle, "peace" sticker, and the strip. The snowgirl already had all the doodle lines on her. And that my friends is it. I thought this snowgirl was the perfect image for a fun card. When I found the "peace" sticker it was perfect since she kind of looks like a hippy anyway. :D Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!
