Ornament & Ribbon

Today to start off the long weekend I'm sharing a Christmas card.  They say this Labor Day weekend is the unofficial end of summer.  Sure doesn't feel like it here today.  This card is based on the Merry Monday Challenge #72 and Stampin' Up! Only Challenge #78 - ribbons and bows.

I ran a piece of the Winter Frost designer paper through the Big Shot with one of the Holiday Ornaments Framelits and sponged around the edges of the opening with Bermuda Bay ink.  It was then temporarily attached to the Bermuda Bay mat and the opening traced onto the card stock.  I removed the designer paper and covered the tracing with adhesive.  I then added Silver, Bermuda Bay and Whisper White ribbons diagonally across the tracing except at the top where I just put the Silver ribbon straight across.  The designer paper was then added back over the ribbon ornament and the layer was attached to the mat and the Smoky Slate card stock base.  Two pieces of Silver Glimmer paper were attached to a strip of Bermuda Bay card stock and added to the card.  The sentiment from the Embellished Events stamp set was heat embossed with VersaMark and White Embossing Powder.  I punched it out with the Word Window Punch and added Silver Dazzling DetailsDimensionals were used to attach it to the card.  I made a small Bermuda Bay bow and added it to the ornament with Glue Dots.  Have you checked out the Merry Monday challenges yet?  Click on the link above to check out the weekly challenges.  The holidays will be upon us in no time so why not get a head start on those cards.  Hopefully, you'll get to spend some time being creative this weekend.  Enjoy.
