A Christmas Card for Someone Special

Just popping by to share a card I made for our son and his lovely girlfriend. I've made a few using this design over the years, it makes a nice change to the standard 5inch square base. 

To begin, I cut out 2 large scalloped circles from white card and part of one from some matching scrap.
From some more white card, I cut a circle and a slightly larger one from black.
My cute couple are from LOTV, which after printing out, I coloured with Copics before fussy cutting out.
Taking the white plain circle, I inked with Tumbled Glass DI and stamped a snowflake pattern with an ancient red rubber stamp from I don't know where, in the same ink and layered it over the black one. This was then centered on one of the large scalloped circles and a line of crystal Stickles added around the edge of the inked circle and left to dry. Well you've got to have a little bit of sparkle on a Christmas card, it's about the only embellishment I add!
OK, now to making the cardbase. I made sure that 2 of the scallops were square to my scoreboard edge, then scored the scalloped circle without the layers about 2cm from the top parallel to the table, to make a hinge which I secured to the front with liquid glue and left to dry, matching the scallops. 
To assemble the front, the part circle was added, after cutting a snowdrift shape into it and from another bit of leftover white cut another drift and glued it behind the scalloped edged one, matching the scallops.
My sentiment from Uniko was stamped in black and then the whole snowbank was added to the scalloped card base. Finally my couple were added to complete the design.
I might have time to share a few more Christmas makes before the big day so watch this space!

Favourite Christmas embellishment
You've got to have a bit of sparkle at Christmas and being a CAS girl at heart, Stickles are the nearest I get to embellishments!
