Merry Monday Christmas Window

It's Merry Monday and here's another Christmas card for my stash.


This week we have a color challenge. 



I hadn't used my window die in so long.  I have the shutters to go with it now too and thought it would be perfect for these colors.

I lightly sponged the window with River Rock.  It looked too bright white to me.

Check out the other designer's cards.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Come to Bethlehem
Ink:  River Rock, Cherry Cobbler
Paper:  River Rock, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Always Artichoke, Scrap of DSP
Other:  Window die and Shutter die (MB), Bitty Banners die, Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug), Fir Punch (MS), Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Basic Pearls (colored with Copic marker), 

I hope you'll consider joining us at Merry Monday this week.  It's so nice to have those Christmas cards done well before it's time to mail them.

Thanks so much for joining me today.

Enjoy!

Bonnie, what a beautiful Christmas card. I love that color combo and your window and wreath are awesome. The siding looks great on your house. I haven't bought those shutters but really need to do that.

Totally gorgeous card, Bonnie, with that awesome window & shutter die! Looks amazing against the embossed River Rock panel. You've finished this off so perfectly with that pretty wreath w/pearls and a bow!
FABULOUS!
Have a great week!! :)

I love your card, Bonnie - so much so that I'm thinking I might have to buy the shutter dies to go with my window die! I've put wreaths on the door die, but never thought of putting one on the window die - I must file that idea away for future use! Thank you!
