Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #124

Happy Monday, it is a holiday Monday  – who doesn't like a long weekend.

It is time for a new Merry Monday Card Challenge – our hostess is Deanne this week and the Challenge: Your card must include a gift/present somewhere on it.



I had this vision of what I wanted this card to look like in my head, I like how it turned out but I am not sure it is how I wanted to turn out.  I started with a nice DP and layered to with a thin black layers, I added some shear ribbon and a little twine.




I added a simple sentiment in a shape that looks like it might be a tag and added some sequins. I finished my popping it all up with foam tape and adding a textured layer.

Supplies: White and clack cardstock, Designer Paper – Kaisercraft, Happy Christmas – Unknown, embossing folder, ribbon, twine, sequins.

The Merry Makers have some wonderful samples to share so take a look at the Merry Monday blog. We would love for you to play along with us.

Thank you for visiting,
Nina
