52CCT - November Technique Challenge - Paper Piercing

Hello sweet friends and followers,
I'm happy you're here today to visit me.

It's time for another weekly challenge
at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown
it's the last one of November
and it's a technique challenge

Here's my DT card for this challenge:
Stamp and sentiment from "Ugly Sweaters" by Your Next Stamp

My piercing is around the red portion of the circle
(unfortunately it doesn't show up really well in the photo).

I did a little masking so the sweater sleeves
are overlapping each other a bit.
I drew a circle around the inside of the
first circle die so I could see where the
sleeves should extend beyond the edge of the circle.
Then I cut just those parts with my scissors and
put the circle die back on with the sleeves on
the outside of the frame and ran it through my Big Shot
to get the circle shape that the sweaters are on.
Next time I'll try a little smaller sweater
(now that I know how to do it).

I hope that  you will go check out the creations by
the rest of the talented team at 52CCT
and then decide to join us this week too.
Grab that piercing tool and get to poking!
