Hark the Herald

This card started out as a Merry Monday card for this week, but I decided to go another direction for my Design Team card.  Here's the runner up.  (If you want to see the Merry Monday card, scroll down to the last post.)

When I was visiting blogs, I saw a couple few other challenges that this would fit and thought I'd play along with them.

Christmas Stamping All Year Long - Anything Goes
My Mum's Craft Shop Challenge - Christmas in August
Christmas Card Challenge - Texture
Winter Wonderland - Inspiration photo

Merry Monday #28 - Sketch

I used the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack to do all that fancy piercing.  The templates have lots of designs to choose from.  The new SU Paper Piercing Tool is easy to hold and works wonderfully.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! (unless otherwise noted)

Card Recipe
Stamps: Rejoicing with You, Many Merry Messages
Ink:  VersaMark
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Brushed Gold
Other:  Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack, Paper-Piercing Tool,  Large Scallop Edgelit, Delicate Designs EF, Gold Embossing Powder, Scallop Trim Corner Punch

I hope you've enjoyed the Christmas posts today.  I've sure enjoyed your stopping by.  And thanks so much for commenting. I really enjoy hearing from you and seeing what you're doing too.

Bonnie this is just lovely. Love the use of embossing to add a bit of texture to your card and the sentiment is so fitting for the upcoming holidays. So glad you could share your creativity with us for our "Texture" challenge at Christmas Card Challenges! Dee
