Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #213

Merry Monday everyone, welcome to a new Merry Monday Christmas card challenge.. there are 103 days till Christmas, if you have not started your holiday card yet.. what are you waiting for.

This week’s challenge from Debbie is to create a Christmas card using the inspiration image. This is such a beautiful image with so much inspiration.

The first thing that caught my eyes was the colours, white, red, hints of cream or tan and tiny speck of green from the sprig of holly or mistletoe. So with all that in mind I dug through my paper pads till I found something that would work for me.

I jumped in with layers, all cut out with my handy dandy stitched die cuts (yes… they are still a favorite). Although you can not see it so much I did layers of red and black inks for the sentiment and popped it up with foam tape. I finished with some gems.

Supplies: White card stock, Designer Paper – Echo Park, Verve – Holiday Phrases, gems, SSS die cuts.

The Merry Makers have tons of inspiration over on the blog, stop by take a look and be sure to leave a little love.
