Merry Monday #75

Happy Monday it is time for a new  Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge, Lesley has posted another wonderful image for this weeks challenge inspiration.
 
  

I am never sure about vanilla, it always looks like cream to me sooo I used a cream/vanilla cardstock for the base of this card and the base of the sentiment, I used mostly red designer paper for the two panels that are backed by a dark brown card stock.  The sentiment is heat embossed with brown embossing powder.
 
 
I used my Cricut to cut out a snowflake in dark brown themn used a glue pen to scribble on it and added red and gold glitter embossing powder. I finished with a glitter dot in gold.

Supplies: Vanilla and brown card stock, Designer Paper - Echo Park, Cricut - Snowflake, Stampendous - Christmas Wishes, Gold and Red glitter embossing powder, gold glitter dot
 
Join us, head over to the Lesley's blog  and see all the beautiful Design Team creations and take the challenge.

Cheers,
Nina
