Double Christmas Challenge - Circle Thinlits Flip Card

Pin It Now!
Hey crafty friend!  I'm popping in today with a little Christmas cheer!  Here's a flip card using SU's Circle Thinlits, with the twist of a festive banner on the inside.
I've extended the card with an extra flap, and when opened...
Out stretches a starry ornament banner!
The flip side of the circle is vellum embossed with Lucky Stars embossing folder.  The glue dots are strategically placed to be covered by sequins. 
A little ribbon to finish the front.  It also makes it easy to tuck the circle and hold the card closed. 
I'm playing along with these two Christmas challenges!  Please visit them for some jolly inspiration! Click on the pics to open their pages...

  3. LOVE this! When I first saw your card I was thinking I need to get my thinlit die out and use it more because I really liked the DSP you used on the front, and thought it made a really nice and simple card. But then you open it up and WOW oh WOW! I absolutely LOVE the banner you did on the inside...so, SO cool! Well done! :0)
