Day 2 Christmas Spirit Challenge

Welcome to day 2 of my 12 days of Christmas. Today is Flourishes Christmas Spirit challenge 19 Round like a Wreath. We are moving this challenge to the Flourishes Blog, you can read about the challenge and changes HERE. We also have a surprise this month so be sure to check it out.

Making a round card is fun and I forgot how much fun till I started this one. These round shapes are using Spellbinders Standard Classic circles Large and Big Scalloped circles large. You know what is so cool about acrylic stamps? You can bend them into just about any shape you would like. Meaning this mistletoe border is from the set Meet me Under the Mistletoe and it is actually a long 3 inch piece. However when you wrap it around your acrylic block you can form a border like this. Just one of the benefits of acrylic stamps I think. The sparkle is not showing well, however it is all over the mistletoe leaves. The sentiment is from the set as well and I stamped it up on the Spellbinders Classic ovals small and then layered it on top of the Spellbinders Fancy tags two. I have to say that I love how this turned out and so simple! Now to just be able to photo it without it tilting to the side would be great. ha ha See you back here tomorrow and have a wonderful day!

I have never done a round card, this is just so pretty and I've never wrapped an acrylic image on the block either. You are just so smart!!!!! That's why I love visiting you...
