One More Merry Monday

Guess what?  We're having another Merry Monday!



Lesley says, "Although our weekly challenges are finished for 2012, we have decided to have a 2 week "Any Past Sketch" Challenge here at Merry Monday! You are welcome to use any of the past Merry Monday Sketches. To see all the sketches, please CLICK HERE.

When you create your post on your blog, please be sure to include the Sketch you used as well as the card you created." 


I chose sketch #12 since I wanted to use this new MB die.  Here's the sketch....


I cut 2 of the County Village and used some Stampin Dimensionals behind the front piece to give it a 3D look.

I put my new favorite snowflake embossing folder to use on the vellum and the Whisper White panel.  Once I got the village laid out, it went pretty fast.

Check out the other designers favorite sketches.  You'll be glad you did.


If you have some stampin' time, pick a sketch, make a card and link it up at the Merry Monday Challenge.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  To You and Yours (retired)
Ink:  Midnight Muse
Paper:  Whisper White, Midnight Muse, Vellum
Other:  Country Village die (MB), Modern Label Punch, Snowflake EF (Cuttlebug)

Thanks for stopping by.  I can't wait to see what you've created lately.

Enjoy!

I love that you overlapped that die twice Bonnie, such a sweet card and the perfect way to interpret the sketch!

What a great idea to cut 2 and pop the die forward. I will have to remember that trick!

Love the card but especially love that gorgeous embossing plate. That really does look like snow!!!

Marisa said...

Such a wonderful scene! Love the falling snow too :)

Susan said...

LOVE this card....can you tell me who makes this die?

Bonnie said...

Susan, I don't see an address to contact you. Memory Box makes this die. I believe it's called Country Landscape.

Another wonderful card, Bonnie, with a nostalgic feel to it: a wonderful neighborly place where anyone would want to spend Christmas!

Such a wonderful winter scene this is. Love that you layered two dies sure adds to the town. Great idea! The snow and vellum look beautiful ! I agree with Darnell I woul want to spend Christmas there .

So pretty, Bonnie! I like that embossing folder you used..haven't seen that one before. It's PERFECT for your card, with its snowy appearance.

I love the scene you've created, and your use of the die is very creative! Great card!!

Colleen said...

Beautiful scene, Bonnie! I love the depth you created by overlapping the die cuts and the way you continued the "snow" onto the blue strip.
Hugs and Merry Christmas to you and your family.

This is so pretty Bonnie! I love the landscape die! You have added it to the top of my want/need list! Such an enabler you are! :-)

This has 2 of my favorite new things: the Snowflake folder, and the MB die. You've combined them so well and made just a perfectly lovely card. The layout is wonderful. TFS
