Here is the inspiration photo Carolina gave us:
Here's what I came up with:
I was obviously inspired by the colors and all the little round boxes in the photo. I don't usually work so literally from the inspiration piece, but I did with this one, for some reason. I also issued myself an extra challenge to try and use some of my older Gina K. Designs sets instead of always reaching for the newer ones. I started with a card base of Pure Luxury Ocean Mist and layered with patterned paper from the Basic Grey Mistletoe & Pears 12x12 pad. Using Spellbinders Scallop Circle Nesties, I cut out a scalloped circle from Ocean Mist, Green Apple, Grass Green, Lipstick Red, Cranberry Tart and Innocent Pink cardstock. I layered each with a small circle cut from different patterns in the Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses 6x6 pad with Spellbinders Classic Circle Dies. I stamped sentiments from The Magic of Christmas, Festive Frame and First Christmas onto three of the circles with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. On the remaining three circles, I stamped different snowflakes from The Magic of Christmas set. I added "pearls" around all the scalloped frames with a Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen. I added a few iridescent gems to the centers of the snowflakes. A few tiny bows on the remaining circles finished my card.
