Merry Everything


I hope everyone had a great long holiday weekend!! Now its back to the real world!! lol! Today i have a holiday card i made for My Favorite Things Color Challenge. I am also submitting it to Addicted to Stamps Challenge Blog, the challenge being Holiday! I am also submitting my name to their Challenge Design Team Call!

I sent to my Christmas pattern paper to help come up with the colors in the challenge. The background pattern paper is grey with dots of red, light blue and white. The ground is a light blue plaid glitter pattern. I stamped the Merry Everything in black ink on the blue ground after hand cutting a curve that is mostly hidden by Santa and tree.

I cut the Tree Cutout die from green pattern paper (all the pattern paper is from the same stack so it all matches!) I lightly inked the edges with green ink. I placed the blue ground on my card base with foam dots, then added the tree. I added a few red and white sequins to the tree.

For the Santa i used the matching die, then stamped him in black. I used copic markers to color him, then added him to my card! Oh and i almost forgot the star! I used some gold washi tape and added it to a piece of scrap paper, then die cut the tiny star and added to the top of the tree!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
