Noel Circle Card

It's still early to be creating Christmas cards but last year it was a major rush for me so I figured this was as good a time as any to start working on them... plus, this type of card worked for a couple of challenges. 

Double Trouble has a challenge happening that requires a circle - whether the project itself is a circle or contains a circle, there must be a circle present. 

They have also paired up with the Joy of Sets Challenge... 

The Joy of Sets requires you to use one row, column or diagonal line when you create your project. 

I chose the diagonal line containing:
Circle, Animal, Plaid

I haven't made a circular card in ages! I went to my trusty Cricut machine for the file. It was the animal component that made me decide to turn my card into a Christmas card. The best plaid paper I had was from an older paper pack called Jack - and it was red and black. 

I used a deer head - and cut everything using glitter paper. The snowflakes sit behind the deer head and the word NOEL is in the forefront, added with foam tape. I placed a couple of sparkles inside the centre of the snowflakes as well. 

Come and join the fun at Double Trouble and the Joy of Sets
