Lights Aglow, Christmas Card, Split Circle Technique, Stampin' Up! 2022 Fall Mini Catalog

Today's card was a lot of fun to make. I have been having fun with the "Split Circle" technique. I found a card on Pinterest and I thought it would be fun to use the Designer Series Paper (DSP) that I have to make it into a Christmas card. You can see the original card here

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. This card opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top. I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock, I textured it using the snowflake die in the "Wintery 3D" embossing folder set. I glued this piece to the front of the card.

Then I die cut the circles using paper from the "Lights Aglow" 6" x 6" stack. There's some mighty pretty papers in that stack. One side they are embossed with gold and the backsides are not but are just as pretty. I used the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th largest stitched circles in the "Stylish Shapes" die set. And I cut each circle in half. You need to cut two large and two small of each color and the middle one is the same for the top and bottom piece.

Next the circles were taped together and glued in place on the front of the card.

I die cut a couple of gold foil leaves using the die from the "Forever Fern" set. I glued then in place on top of the line of the light green half-circle.

The words are from my computer. I used the Lucinda Handwriting font and the RGB code for the Evening Evergreen color 73R 90G 83B.  I printed them out and cut them 1/2" x 3-7/8".  I should have set the strip on the card using Dimensionals instead of gluing it in place.  It could stand a bit of depth.  But all in all I like it and I think I would make this card again. I may make a few for Christmas cards this year. They don't take a lot of DSP to do it.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see today's Christmas Card,
