Finally!


I am finished with my holiday cards! I have been putting this off for weeks and trying to come up with a card that did not have a lot of layers and bulk, but were still fun and festive. Thanks to Kate, at i {heart} papers, I finally was inspired after she sent me an adorable card using this Petallo Dazzler snowman....Thanks Kate!

To make this card I cut an oval in the center of the cardstock, then cut a larger oval in red and placed it on the inside of the card. The scallop was made using two nesties together and then cut in the wizard. I also used the Swiss Dots cuddlebug folder, white gel pen, and ribbon!

Thanks for looking!
