Merry Monday # 61

We had a stunning weekend here in Victoria and the beautiful weather is going to continue right through the week.
We have a new Merry Monday for you today, I don't seem to have any troubles making Christmas cards when the sun is shining. This is the sketch Lesley has created for us.

I started with heat embossing the sentiment and snowflakes in black, I then masked them before stamping the text background. I cut out three layers of the snowflake with my Cricut and popped up the center layer. I finished with a swirled embellishment and silver pearls.

Supplies: Natural White and black card stock, Stampabilities - Faded Text background, Verve - Glad Tidings, Cricut - Winter Lace, Dress it up Embellishment, Recollections pearls.
Stop by Lesley’s blog, Always Playing with Paper to see what the Design Team has created. Join us and play along, it is never to early to get a start on this year Christmas cards.
