HLS March Christmas Challenge

It's that time again! Another challenge starting over at Happy Little Stampers. I will be back from my cruise tomorrow so I will be able to catch up with you all then. I'm sure I'll be nice and relaxed :)

Today is the start of our Christmas Challenge. We would like you to make a 

I decided to go with a circle card.

I've used some non-traditional colours here which I love. 

Using my largest circle die (SU), I used it on folded card stock making sure I didn't cut right at the top of the fold. This left me with a perfect circle card.

I then cut the same circle twice more and embossed one using a dotty folder. The dotty one was adhered to the front and the plain one adhered to the back. This gave the card extra stability.

I created my snowflake background by using the '*' from the Bold Birthday Sentiments set. The sentiment is from the Mixed Christmas Sentiments set. Some die cut stars and a few pearls finished it off. 


If you play along this month in any of the challenges at HLS, you could win!

I would like to welcome Rahmat as our Guest Designer this month. She is a big fan of HLS and is a wonderful follower of our challenges.

  1. Such a gorgeous CAS design Kylie and I love the cool colours and cute bow on the stars.

  2. Beautiful.. so soft and flowy... it really draws you in to take a closer look.. Awesome job.. and the little bow on the star is the perfect touch.

  3. Love the way you did the circle so that the top is not squared off - thanks for the explanation! Beautiful blue and white colour scheme with just a hint of inking on the white parts. The red sentiment really catches the eye.

  4. This would be a lovely welcome baby card too.

  5. So pretty with the soft colors, the scallop edgeing, and the dots embossing. Love the dainty distressing around the edges of the white, with the same treatment on the stitch-y stars. Really so cute, and it stands beautifully too. TFS

  6. Beautiful Christmas card. Such light colors, like a sunny January day. For the full glare of the sun and the snow. Thank you for the beautiful feeling of watching your beautiful card.
