Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #270

We have a new Merry Monday Christmas card challenge,  Kelly is our hostess and her challenge is to Create a Christmas card using diagonal, horizontal, or vertical line.

I went right down the left hand side for this challenge. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment popping it up with foam tape.

I used a die cut for the scissors and the bow, this is a card for my stylist so I had to get them in somewhere.

For the final line item I used DP that is a rich wintery burgundy, that is in the family of red.. yes?

I added a layer of paper underneath and cut it as if it is being peeled back. I finished with some gold Nuvo drops but I find they don't settle the same way the plain black ones do so I must be doing something wrong.

Supplies: Kraft and brown cardstock, Designer Paper - Teresa Collins, misc die cuts and Nuvo drops.

Be sure to stop by the Merry Monday blog to take a look at all the fabulous cards created by the design team.

Play along with another fabulous challenge.
