Hello crafty friends! I'm Lien and this week I'm sharing a clean and simple circle card using some die cut inlay! As always you can find the video at the bottom of the blogpost!

For this card I started out by stamping the lovely little Christmas tree image from the Polar Party stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink (any alcohol marker friendly ink will do!) onto Clairefontaine DCP 250 gsm cardstock. I quickly colored this in with my markers and then fussy cut it out. If you're not as much a fan of fussy cutting as I am, you can use the matching dies. Now I'm going to zhuzh up this tree a little bit more later, but let's get started on our cardbase and background, shall we?

To make this circle card I die cut three circles of the same size, using some regular old nesting circle dies. I put two aside, those will form my cardbase later and from the third one I can die cut the Circle Element Confetti Cuts die right from the center of it. I also die cut that same die from some holographic gold cardstock, any specialty cardstock will really pack a punch here!

I then used my scoring tool to put a score line near the top of one of the plain circles. I reinforce that with my bonefolder and put some liquid glue on everything above the scoreline then adhere it to the second plain circle. I then glue the white circle with the circle element die cut from it right to the front of my card. Now using some more liquid glue, I fill in some of the gaps and I use a jewel picker to insert the gold holographic pieces for a fun die cut inlay look. Once I've done all that I can mount the tree on top with some foam adhesive. To finish the tree I put some Wink of Stella Clear Brush pen on the stars and some Glossy Accents on the red baubles.
