Merry Monday July Challenge

It is Monday and that means that we have a new and old Merry Monday Challenge. Lesley, wise lady that she is, will be shutting down her computer for July so this challenge will run long. We are going to choose our favorite Merry Monday Sketch and create something new. Old sketch, new card :).

I am still going to try to create a Christmas card each Monday, I will have to see if I can manage it. After all it is summer and well.. there is just outdoor fun stuff to do.

For my card this week I went back to the sketch from Merry Monday #17. I recently placed an order with Stampin' Up! and I could not wait to ink of the Happy Hour stamp set.

I wanted my card to have a bit of a vintage feel, I used some new designer paper I received from Scrapbookers Paradise. I used Versacolour to add some colour to all my edges. I stamped and cut out the little holly leaves for the drink glasses. I finished with a  Holiday Cheer sentiment.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper - October Afternoon, Stampin' Up!-Happy Hour, Cornish Heritage Farms - Vintage Christmas

Stop by Lesley's blog to join in the fun and see what creations that design team has on display.



  1. Nina this is a gorgeous vintage Christmas card. Those glasses are very cute with the holly attached and the DSPs you've used are fabulous!

  2. Hi Nina, I love the little holly sprigs on the goblets! Teeny, tiny cutting there and well worth the effort! A great card!

  3. Nina, the vintage look works well with these DSPs. Love the finishing touch of the holly in the glasses.
