Today I have my weekly Christmas card for the Merry Monday Sketch Challenge #19. I've also used the colors from a brand new challenge: Dynamic Duos #1.
For the base, I chose Shimmery White card stock. A piece of retired Sweet Shop designer
paper was added. A piece of Lucky Limeade card stock was cut out using the Big Shot and the Lattice Biz die and then added to the designer paper layer. I cut one edge of a piece of Shimmery White card stock with the Big Shot and the scallop edge from the
Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies. I then ran it through the Big Shot again with the scalloped Adorning Accents embossing folder. Lucky Limeade card stock was also cut with the scallop edgelit and used to mat the edge of the white card stock. The sentiment from the Petite Pairs stamp set was heat embossed with VersaMark and Lucky Limeade ink. The tree was punched out of a piece of Lucky LImeade card stock and the designer paper with the Petite Pennants Builder punch, They were both attached to a circle cut out with the Circle Scissor Plus. I matted it with a Pool Party card stock circle and attached it to the card with dimensionals. Large Pearls were added to the lattice, small pearls added to the tree and a rhinestone added to the top of the tree. That's it for another Christmas card for my growing stash. I hope you get a chance for some creative fun - try one of the many challenges out there if you need a little inspiration.
