BSS MONDAY IDEA - An Aperture Card

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

This week's idea is an Aperture Card, that is  a card with an opening
on the front.

I die cut three circles on the front of my card.

And Stamped the images to the inside of the card.

What I used

Stamps - Penny Black - Let's Chill Cling set, including sentiments (40-353)
Snowflake dies - Cheery Lynn Designs, DL169 Snowflake 5 and Dl170 Snowflake 6
Snowflake Paper - Carta Bella-Countdown to Christmas
Circle Dies - Spellbinders S4-114 Standard Circles Large
Heart is a small punch

How I did it.

Started with a white card stock 5x7 card base
Cut a 5x7 piece of the designer paper and adhered it to the front of the card.
Marked where I wanted to die cut the circles and cut them.
I made the rings around the circles by using the die I cut the circles
in the card with and the die one size larger.  Place the smaller die inside
the larger die on your card stock and cut.  You will be left with just the ring.
I adhered the rings to the circles on the front.

I then stamped the little penguins inside the circles on the inside of the card.
with Versafine black onyx ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.
Since it is a solid stamp, Everything comes out black.  So, I stamped each
of them again on a piece of colored card stock and embossed with clear embossing powder.
I then cut out the scarves and hats and the earmuffs and glued them on over
the original stampings.  Added the snowflakes to the front and the sentiments.

This would be beautiful done with soft colors and snowflakes in the circles, which you
could die cut and adhere on the inside.  A lot of possibilities.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you are almost prepared for the holidays.
Until later.
