Merry Monday #27
Another Christmas card, I know. I know. It is my favourite holiday of the whole year, and when I received the Holiday Mini from Stampin' Up, I could not wait to get creating.
While I took my "sabbatical" I came across a challenge called Merry Monday over at Always Playing with Paper, where each week the challenge is to create a Christmas card. Not only does this challenge aim to keep the most festive of us calm all through the year with a touch of Christmas each week, it really builds up your supply of Christmas cards - ready for giving in December. Imagine if I had have started back in January, I would already have created 32 cards. Crazy, huh!
Back to my card. I fell in love with the silver and red glimmer paper last holiday season, so then the champagne colour came out, it was the very first thing I bought. I knew I needed it! I love the new Holiday Ornaments Framelits Dies (actually, any punch or die that co-ordinates with a stamp is wonderful). I used the Finishing Touches Edgelits to create the bottom edges. And, the greeting is from More Merry Messages - great words for both the outside and the insides of cards.
It's a pretty straight forward card, but the glamour from the Glimmer Paper really makes it sparkle.
