This week's Christmas card is for the Merry Monday Challenge #33. I also challenged myself with two others: CASology #11 - White and Jingle Belles - Snow.
On this card, I didn't use any stamp sets or ink. I will probably stamp a sentiment on the inside when I get ready to send it out. The base is Whisper White card stock. The first layer is also Whisper White card stock that had the corners punched with the Scallop Trim Corner Punch. For a little bit of color, I added a strip of Old Olive card stock to this layer. I then added a piece of Whisper White Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon over the card stock and
attached this layer to the card. Another piece of Whisper White was embossed with the Big Shot and the retired Snow Burst Embossing Folder. This was matted with Silver Glimmer paper and added to the card. I cut out some snowflakes from the retired Northern Frost Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die with the Big Shot. They were attached to a piece of Whisper White card stock and then run through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. This layer was also matted with Silver Glimmer paper. I added an Old Olive glimmer brad and attached the layer to the card with dimensionals. I tied a bow through an Old Olive button with White Baker's Twine and used a dimensional to attach it to the card. Lots of glimmer on this card makes it very festive for the holidays. And they are coming fast. But first, we welcome fall. I'm looking forward to some lovely days here in the northeast. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
