season's greetings

Hello! It's Monika here today with a Christmas card. I love circle cards so I decided to make one:

The scallop circle base was die-cut out of heavy designer paper. The birdhouse image is from Season's Greetings clear stamp set. I stamped an extra holly cluster and after coloring the images and cutting them out, I adhered the cluster to the main image with dimensional tape. I added psychedelic embossing powder to the snowy areas and red rhinestones as berries. The greeting is from Christmas Pine clear stamp set. I also added some holly branches from a retired stamp set... just to fill in some empty areas... 
The black frame (die-cut with 2 circle dies), the birdhouse and holly leaves underneath, and the greeting are all popped up with dimensional tape... to finish off the card, I added more rhinestones and red/white baker's twine.
If you are really creative, by adding a clear window sheet you could easily turn this into a circle shaker card!

Thanks for stopping by,
