Merry Monday #169 - Use Green, Light Green, & Red


Hello friends.  Playing along with Merry Monday and the challenge is to use green, light green, and red on our Christmas cards.  Here's what I came up with:


 
I used an oldie but a goodie...PTI's Birds & Blooms stamp set to create my wreath.  I don't think it was ever intended to be a Christmas wreath, but using Christmas colors makes it look like a Christmas wreath to me, and I just love all the details in this set.  I used Old Olive, Certainly Celery, and Real Red for my inks.  I used SSS Wavy Scallop Stitches die to separate the wreath and my sentiment, which is a die from PTI's Wet Paint Holiday.  This is a smaller card size (3 1/2 x 5 1/2), and I finished it off with a red & white bakers twine bow and a few iridescent sequins.  It may be small in size, but I really like how it turned out, and I even took the time to finish the inside! (I'm terrible about finishing insides, and then when I want to quick send something out.....grrrrr!!)
 

                                            
                                                  
There's still a few days to play along, so check out all the inspiration and make a card (or two) to add to your Christmas card stash...you'll be glad you did come December!  You can find all the info you need to play along right HERE.
