Framed & Festive, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up! 2022

Today I thought I would play with some circles. I wasn't sure where I was going with it but this is what I ended up with.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Garden Green for the background and I die cut the largest stitched circle die from the "Stylish Shapes" set from the center of the piece. I cut the circle in half.

Then I die cut a circle using the largest die from the "Layering Circles" die set and the "Painted Christmas" 12" x 12" package of Designer Series Paper (DSP). I cut the circle in half. Then I taped it to the Garden Green circle halves.

The words are from the "Framed & Festive" set and were stamped using Garden Green ink. I die cut them using the third largest stitched circle in the "Stylish Shapes" die set. And I die cut a Garden Green scalloped circle from the "Layering Circles" die set. I taped those two pieces together. I added Dimensionals to the back and set the piece aside.

To assemble the card I taped the Garden Green background piece down and then the Basic White piece on top.

The half circles were taped about 1/4" from the edges. And the word piece was set on top. After putting it together the back looked so bare so I took my Real Red marker and flicked on some color. I probably should have textured the Basic White piece in stead because I didn't like the looks of the red on it and I had to mask my circles so I didn't get Real Read on them.  I could take it apart and replace the Basic White piece with a textured piece but I'm leaving it because I show you all my cards, the good the bad and the ugly!!! This one is not good!!! LOL

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