First of all, I want to give a special thanks to Narelle for choosing my Merry Monday #22 card as her favourite for last week's challenge! Thanks so much for making my day a little more awesome :) Be sure to check out her cards (here), they're super gorgeous!
Just a reminder to those who are interested.... Merry Monday is a challenge hosted by Lesley at Always Playing with Paper. She posts a different sketch each week, and we make 1 Christmas card each week inspired by the sketch.... come Christmas, we'll have over 50 cards ready to share with our friends and family!
Now, onto Merry Monday #23, here's the sketch:
And my card:
I just LOVE this dark teal paper I used. I have so much of it and need to use it up somehow! Anyways, I used my Snowflakes Cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss the snowflakes on the white backgronud. I also embossed the bottom of the white insert inside the card with the snowflakes (you can see a peek in the photo). The ornament is cut from CTMH's Art Philosophy catridge and I ran that through the Bird and Swirls embossing folder. I adhered the ornament on the card with some white ribbon and it's actually pop dotted too to give some dimension (though it's hard to tell in the photo). I embellished the teal strip at the bottom with lines of rhinestones (you don't even know... this makes the card look super shimmery, it's so awesome! but again, it's hard to capture with the camera). Finally, I stamped the "very merry" (from Stampin' Up's Short and Sweet Stamp Set) sentiment with teal ink, heat embossed it et voila! I think this is my favourite Merry Monday entry so far!
Thanks for looking :)
