Good Merry Monday morning! We have another of Lesley's wonderful CAS sketches this week.
It's a perfect sketch for using Designer Series Paper isn't it?
I didn't though.
I was going to.
But I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I pulled out an embossing folder instead. I fear I'm addicted to these things!
I had bought this Memory Box holly die a while back and hadn't used it. I thought that it would work really well for the banner in the sketc so I cut it from Whisper White and sponged ink on it with eye shadow applicators. It was a perfect match for the holly embossing folder.
All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
Stamps: More Merry Messages
Ink: Encore Gold, Soft Suede, Garden Green
Paper: Very Vanilla, Brushed Gold, Whisper White (for holly)
Other: Gold EP, Holly EF (Sizzix), Holly Branch die (Memory Box), Red Rhinestones (?)
Edited to add:
Festive Friday is having an inspiration challenge this week and this card fits! Thanks for the tip, Ardyth.
Di is away but she's left the Pixie's playground open so I'm skipping over there with my snippets for a look see at what's going on. And a chance to win some bubbles.
Before you go over there to take a look, be sure to check out the rest of the Merry Makers Team cards. You'll be glad you did!
And if you want to get a head start on your Christmas cards, join us at Merry Monday.
