Scraps for Christmas Cards #1

Again over at Word Art Wednesday they are having Challenge number 105 and as always its Anything Goes.

I saw a video on this card from Scraps & Stamps on You tube.  I loved it and knew I could replicate it with the tools that I have on hand in my craft room.

Here is how I started, Picked out  my base supplies to make sure I could replicate the card.
This is a Oval from a My Favorite Things. 

My mat is a Paper Studio Heavy Weight card stock in the color cream. It measures 5 1/4 by 4.
After I cut the Oval out from my mat I lightly drew a circle to know where to put my tape.
The pattern paper is Recollections brand in the big 12 by 12 packs. The brown came from an Autumn stack and the green, red, and blue came from a Christmas stack.
I used a Stampin Up writer marker in Chocolate chip to make fau sticth marks along the outside.
 I cut my strips at 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4 of an inch wide.
Used my trusty ATG gun and applied adhesive around the traced circle.
Layed the strips down in no particular order.
Cut off the excess.
Foam adhesive, your favorite kind, taking note to add to the inner circle area so the card doesn't sag.
I believe the banner die is from My Favorite Things but I am not sure where the Merry die is from.  Just google Christmas dies and you should find many different kinds.

Getting ready to Emboss the sentiment, I only inked the Christmas part of the Merry Christmas Stamp
Regular adhesive on the area of the Christmas and pop dots on the other end.
Pop dots near the top and liquid glue on the bottom

Again I believe CASEing is all about using the supplies you have and the original idea and making it your own.
