This was so easy to create. I began with a sheet of heavyweight gray cardstock. One half was used as the card base. Another quarter was embossed with a cover plate and cut down a quarter inch to serve as a panel which I popped up with fun foam. I made my own circle stencil and very lightly blended with white pigment ink. The remaining pieces are all die cuts. I am in love with this card and if I were mass producing holiday cards this year (which I am not) this would be the design. Who knows....maybe next year. LOL!
