We had another great day of instruction and ideas in the Holiday Card Boot Camp! I have to admit that I struggled waaay too much over embossing and just couldn't get anything to work right - the colors looked wrong or the embossing didn't work. I ended up using the card pattern idea without embossing.
The inspiration card had a circle cutout with an image hanging within the circle. However, I decided to use a stamped image that I made from Kristina W's Holiday Card Series (card #5) as the background that peeks thru the circle. I love the bird and soft background.
Here's the inside of the card:
I created an SVG file of the card with a circle, which you can download for free: Card with circle
Now I'm off to try making another card!
