Christmas Circles with Mindy Eggen


Welcome everyone! Mindy Eggen here with you and today we are going to play with circles to make a super easy-peasy Christmas card. I was inspired to make this card from some journaling cards I've seen online that are used in December Daily albums.


I'll be using the Circular set from the November Release. Actually, I'll be using just the coordinating die of this stamp set. You could certainly stamp or heat emboss the images but I am going for just circle die cuts on this one.



I started by die cutting the Circular die set using Fresh Asparagus, Christmas Pine, Red Hot and Cherry Red card stock from Gina K Designs. I toyed with the idea of adding sentiments to a few of the circles but in the end I decided to just add it to one.


On the Fresh Asparagus circle, I stamped a sentiment from the Gift Box Christmas Sentiments in embossing ink. Then heat embossed with white embossing powder. This stamp set actually works quite well with the Circular Stamp set even though they were designed for a different shape. I'm also totally in love with this font!



Using a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock measuring 3 3/4" x 5", I started to randomly place my circles down. Once I was happy with the placement and spacing, I attached them using a tape runner. The sentiment piece I popped up with foam squares to make it stand out a little bit more from the rest.


TIP: If you ever question your placement when making backgrounds like this, take a picture. I will then pull it up on my computer and take a look at it. Sometimes we need to see it in a different setting to really get a good look at the placement.



Once the circles are attached, I'll trim off any pieces hanging over. Then I'll spray my front panel with Gold Glitter Dust.


After that is dry, I can attach it to a panel measuring 4" x 5 1/4" to give a white border. Lastly, I can add it to a card base made from Red Hot card stock to pull the reds together.
