Circles at Christmas

Today's card is so simple, I'm almost embarrassed to tell you how I made it! lol
My starting point was a scrap of paper embossed with the Cuttlebug 'Snow Dots' folder...I chose a couple of other scraps (from the '29th Street Market' collection by My Mind's Eye), and embossed them with my Cuttlebug 'Ice Crystals' and 'Snowflakes' folders. I cut the circles using one of my Nesties, then sanded the edges, and over the raised areas to reveal the white core. I mounted them using foam pads on to my DL sized card, then added a stamped sentiment (from the 'Bubble Tree' set by Woodware).
