GSF November Circles Blog Hop

It's time to hop with the Global Stamping Friends (aka GSF) October Blog Hop and this month our theme was circles. You will be visiting Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over the world as they share their projects to help inspire you with your own creations. You may have just visited Rachel's blog or perhaps you are starting here with me. I hope that you will enjoy the projects we have to share today.

My card design today features circles as an accent to the new Snowfall Thinlets dies (item #149692), which are part of November's exclusive Snowflake Showcase. These amazing dies along with two stamp sets and a variety of coordinating products, are only available for November 1st-30th, or while supplies last. 

For my card design I used Night of Navy, Balmy Blue, Whisper White and Silver for my color combination. I created the large detailed snowflake using the largest snowflake die and die cut it from the Balmy Blue layer of cardstock. I punched out  circles from Night of Navy cardstock using the 1 3/4" Circle Punch and the 2 1/4" Circle Punch. The larger circle I layered behind the center of the large snowflake and the smaller circle I attached to the center of the top of the snowflake with Stampin' Dimensionals. I die cut the center star snowflake design using one of two of the medium sized dies that layer together to create this beautiful, intricate design, and attached it to the center of the Night of Navy 1 1/4" circle. 

The sentiment is from the Timeless Tidings stamp set, one of my favorite sets for Christmas sentiments in the 2018 Holiday Catalog, and I heat embossed it with Silver embossing powder along the bottom of the Whisper White cardstock layer.

For a touch of bling, I added Basic Rhinestones to the center and various points of the snowflake. I just love the way this clean and simple Christmas card looks and the way the silver pops against the Night of Navy. This card design would be great for creating multiples to send out to family and friends. 

I hope that you have enjoyed my Christmas card design and I hope that it will inspire you to try the new Snowfall Thinlets dies. They are so beautiful and there are so many wonderful ways to create with them. I will be sharing more ideas here in the future.
