Today's card showcases this week's Make-it-Monday challenge over at Papertrey Ink: Reverse applique. I wanted to create a simple card, but it had quite a few steps to get to the end result. I wanted to keep my stitching simple and chose to sew around a punched circle. It's not as easy as it looks to sew a perfect circle, but I am happy with the results. I heat embossed my sentiment and attached the banner strip to the card front. Then I carefully punched it out again. I applied my scrap patterned paper from Holiday Vintage Prints. I finished off the "applique" with a heat embossed die cut snowflake attached with foam adhesive.
This is my first Christmas card for this year. I still have many more to make. For those family members that read my blog, you may see this card again when Christmas arrives.
