Merry Monday Christmas Challenge #127

It is Monday once again and time for a new Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge.
This week Kathy is our hostess and her challenge is to Choose three boxes, up/down or diagonally.

Although I think I tried to fit this card in to many of this choices as I could I went straight across the middle with Die cut, Ribbon or Twine and Kraft. I also tried for a simple layout that could be popped in the mail without  extra postage.

I heat embossed the sentiment then layered it and popped it up with foam tape. I used twine to divide the upper and lower segments of the card. I think I should have added some pearls or sequins and I still might but I am leaving it CAS for now.

Supplies: Kraft and brown card stock, Designer Paper –Fancy Pants , Papertrey Ink– Signature Christmas, Inspired by Stamping - die cut, twine.

Don’t forget to stop by the Merry Monday blog to see the Design Team’s creations, leave the ladies a little comment love along the way.

Thank you for stopping by.

  7. I love these warm colors Nina. The patterned papers are great choices for your little Christmas note!

  8. Hi Nina,

    With the choices for three boxes up or down it feels like card-sketch bingo.
    You nailed it!

    Personally I don't believe you did need the pearls, this is so well-balanced just the way it is.
