Merry Monday Another Ornament

I looked in my Christmas card box yesterday.  Wow, thanks to Merry Monday, I think I have enough for my list and my Dad's.  What a relief to have these cards made ahead of time. Now the danger is putting off signing and addressing them.  Need to work on that.


I did this card last week and still had the elements out.  I was looking at this sketch and had an Aha moment.  I love this ornament embossed with gold and backed with the Champagne Glimmer Paper.

This time I used the Good Cheer Builder Wheel that I took off the wheel and mounted. I stamped it in the metalllic gold ink but didn't emboss it.

Here's this week's sketch from the talented Lesley.


I rotated it to make it work with my ornament.

Be sure to visit the other Merry Makers and see what they've done with Lesley's fantastic sketch.  And get to know our new Featured Designer, Margaret Moody!



All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Ornament Keepsakes, More Merry Messages, Good Cheer Builder Wheel (unmountted)
Ink:  Encore Gold
Paper:  Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Champagne Glimmer
Other:  Gold EP, Big Shot, Delicate Designes EF, Holiday Ornaments Framelit, Organdy Ribbon (my very last snippet and I'm sad to say I'll miss it.)

I'll go to Di's playground with my last snippet of ribbon.  She's busy this week, and there's always some mischief going on when she's away.

I'm so glad you stopped by.  I love to hear from you so don't be shy.

Enjoy!

Glorious gold! So elegant, Bonnie. I know what you mean about putting off addressing and signing these Christmas cards. I just thought that to myself. I looked at my pile, and thought, 'hey, I'm doing pretty good'. THen I reminded myself to start filling them in!

The colors you used on this card are so elegant & just lovely. The top embossing really enhances the ornament and makes this card pop. Great idea of how you made the sketch fit your card...you did a marvelous job with it. TFS

Oh the elegance Bonnie!!!!!! Just beautiful!

Doris said...

Beautiful card, Bonnie! Congrats on getting your cards done early. I have only 3 to go for my 100 while I concentrate on Thanksgiving cards. I developed the tradition of signing and addressing my cards on Black Friday while I avoid the overcrowded malls. Then I do my mall shopping on Cyber Monday when the malls are virtually empty of shoppers and flu viruses! See you in the (snail) mail...

Samantha Elliott said...

Oh Bonnie! This is sooo gorgeous I could lick the puter screen! Well done you.
