2S4Y Winter Wonderland!

Hi blog peeps!  It's Monday, which means it's 2S4Y time.  WooHoo!  We got another free week to create and design our cards using any products we like...so here is what I came up with.  Are you ready to check out the Winter Wonderland card I created?  First, let's take a look at Kazan's awesome sketch:
I was really inspired to do a Christmas Theme when I saw this sketch.  Maybe it's because I still had the vintage Christmas colors from the Deck the Halls DSP on the brain from my Vintage Santa card last Friday, but in any case, I continued with the holiday spirit.  Here's a look at my full card.

If you've visited my blog before, you'll know that I love me the Greeting Card Kids stamp set.  It turns out that I also love this yummy Cherry Cobbler color with this vintage look.  I also played with the waffle paper and created my ribbon edge around the circle.  It turns out that the waffle paper is really nice to work with!  It's very pliable and easy to scrunch to create that evenly crinkled border.  Here's a closer look at a few details on the card:
The seam binding ribbon is soo cool to work with because it makes such pretty bows so effortlessly.  All I did to create my bow is wrap 2 loops of ribbon around my hand, then I cinched the middle with the tinsel and then threaded the tinsel through the button. The final step is adhering it to the circle piece of cardstock using mini glue dots. Viola!
And here's a closer look at the waffle paper.  I cut 2 strips of the waffle paper at 1" thick.  One strip goes around just over half of this 2 3/4" circle, so I used the second strip to finish it off and just trimmed the excess.  I used Mono adhesive around the back edge of my circle, then scrunched and secured the waffle paper to the adhesive as I made my way around.  I'll be making more of these circle pieces for sure!  You like?  Hope so!
