Happy weekend! Today I have my weekly Christmas card based on the Merry Monday Challenge #44. This week they have a sketch to work with. I also tried the CASology Cue Challenge #27, the cue being "blue". I was cleaning up a little and came across this already stamped and embossed image from holiday card making so I thought I'd start with that. If you're like me, there's always pieces laying around my creative space from projects that didn't quite come together.
Because the flagged strip hangs over the edge of the card I cut my card base at 4" x 11" so that it would still fit in the A2 size envelope (made the card 4" x 5-1/2"). For the base I chose Not Quite Navy card stock. The sentiment from the Sweet Essentials stamp set was heat embossed on a piece of Baja Breeze card stock using VersaMark, Not Quite Navy ink and clear embossing powder. I snipped one end for the pennant look. It was attached to a piece of Whisper White
card stock and also clipped the same way. I attached it to the bottom of the card. Using the Big Shot and the retired Northern Frost Sizzlits Die, I cut out a small snowflake from Not Quite Navy card stock, attached it with a dimensional and added a Rhinestone to the center. The image from the Four Seasons hostess stamp set was heat embossed on Not Quite Navy card stock using VersaMark and white embossing powder. It was punched out with the large Scallop Circle Punch and attached to a Baja Breeze circle. The Delicate Doilies Sizzlits die was used to cut out the Whisper White doily. I attached the image layer to it and attached all of them to the card with dimensionals. Rhinestones were added for a little holiday glitz. I hope you enjoy this week's card. Have a terrific weekend. I hope the sun is shining where you are.
