Today I'm sharing my weekly Christmas card using the Merry Monday Challenge #20. I don't think I ever used this image so when I saw this sketch, I thought it would be a perfect fit.
The card base is Cherry Cobbler card stock. A piece of retired Frostwood Lodge designer paper was added. Garden Green card stock was matted with Cherry Cobbler card stock and added over the designer paper. I used another piece of the designer paper for the horizontal strip.
Two pieces of Whisper White card stock were punched out with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch and added to the back of the plaid paper. This layer was then adhered to the card. The image from the Christmas Lodge stamp set was heat embossed on Whisper White card stock with VersaMark, Garden Green ink and clear embossing powder. I punched the corners with the Ticket Corner Punch as well as the Cherry Cobbler card stock that I used to mat the image layer. You can't see this in the photo but I added Dazzling Diamonds to the tree branches using a glue pen. It is so pretty in real life. A gold glimmer brad was added to the top of the tree and the image popped up with dimensionals on the card. That's 19 weeks out of 20 that the challenge has been going on (I missed the first week). This has sort of become a personal challenge for me so I've decided Thursday will be my Christmas card day. Here's hoping I can keep up. Thanks again for coming by. Get ready because the weekend is on top of us. Get out there and have some fun being creative.
