Circles and Swirls

 I have been playing with circles and swirls and Christmas cards - made three. The first two used the Nestablilties Circles and a Cuttlebug to cut out various circles and stamp them with a stamp set from Papermania Stamp Duos, with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The papers I used are a mixture of Basic Grey's Fruitcake; My Minds Eye - Frost signature christmas; and the script paper is from Anna Griffith. Some bling and acouple of brads, a rub on and a stamped sentiment from an old unknown stamp for the sentiments an they were done.

The third one used the paper's mentioned and the SU Baroque Swirl stamp in Versamark with gold embossing.  The paper was touched up with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distressing ink and the candles are peel-offs. I put them on Jac paper, rubbed them with fold leaf and then green tinsel to fill in the gaps and then cut them out before taking the backing off and sticking them onto the paper. Don't they look pretty.
