I'm apparently on a Christmas card kick! It is a good time for me to catch up on Christmas card stash but alas, what happened last week? I didn't get to craft at all! :(
This weekend was almost all about World Cup. While watching the games, I managed to make a few cards which will be posted over the next few days. This Christmas card is one of them:
I made it based on the card by Shari Carroll at CASE Study:
I love her overlay of circles and in fact, I've tried to create something similar with my Cricut. Unfortunately, they just happened to be several epic failures. Sometimes practice does not result in perfection. That's okay, lesson learned.
So I turned to the overlays from the Artbooking cartridge. It is not one of circles but it is much more pleasing to my eyes. I've cut some of the connecting points so the diamonds are enlarged. They are placed randomly so this overlay has got diamonds of various sizes. The original overlay looks like this on this card. Similar to what Shari did, I put various patterned paper beneath those diamonds. Don't you love how scraps are used? I have a poinsettia anchored by the sentiment banner, just like what Shari did with her flowers and sentiment.
Happy to see that my Christmas card stash is growing. I can't let that holiday stress happen again!
