Merry Christmas Card with Couture Creations - Out of the Archives

When all else fails when you are sick and need to have something on your blog, go back into the archives and pick out a few of your favorite projects. Today I am sharing with you my Merry Christmas Card I made when I was on the Couture Creations Design Team. I hope you enjoy the tutorial using Couture Creations Nesting Dies along with the Wrapped in Joy Collection.
I started by taking a rectangle piece of paper and using the smallest of the Nesting Circles I placed it on my cutting mat to make my first circle....
 I proceed til I had three circles help them stay in line I used a bit of washi tape just to hold it into place.
 I cut two scallop borders using my Nesting Scallop Retangles...
Placed them in my Moonlit Berries Embossing Folder and embossed....
 and sanded them with my Sanding Block to help expose the core center....
 After I had placed my papaer pieces on my cream card base using Couture Creations two sided tape I placed the circles that I had previous cut back on to the card front with Mounting Foam Tape...I love using double sided paper...this makes this technique so easy to do.
 Here is a closer look the the circles on poop dots....
Love how the scallop border that has been embossed gives a bit more dimension to my card front. 
I want the inside of my card to be as special as the front, so here is a peek at the inside, I placed the angel sicker to the bottom using Mounting Foam Tape from Couture Creations...I hope you try making a special inside of your cards.
I hope you enjoyed my first Merry Christmas card of the season and am looking forward to making my other holiday decorations this year. Hugs Pammejo
