Hello friends. It's the start of a new year over at the Merry Monday challenge site, and this week we are being challenged to use the elegant combination of white on white! There are some absolutely beautiful creations from the DT and players this week that you aren't going to want to miss! Here's what I came up with:
I used a little bit of everything on this card! I started by die cutting the "merry" 3 times (PTI - Wonderful Words: Holiday Die Collection) and then embossing just one of them with white embossing powder. After gluing the 3 together with the embossed one on top, I figured where I wanted to place it and then made 3 embossed lines across the front of the card base. Next I added a Holly Flourish from Cheery Lynn Designs, and then a glittered up die cut poinsettia from Spellbinders. The little bird comes from SSS (Bird of Roses), and I also added a few pearls to the center of the poinsettia and a smaller one for the eye of the bird. I finished with simply stamping "Christmas" in Delicata Golden Glitz ink for just a touch of neutral.
Isn't this a gorgeous inspiration picture?!!! My house is more rustic than elegant, so I don't think I could pull something like this off, but I sure do like looking at it!! :0) Make sure you check out all the beauties this photo has inspired, and even play along! Seriously, Merry Monday's has helped me have my Christmas cards basically done (sometimes I forget to do the insides!) for the past 2 years since I started playing along, and it is definitely a wonderful feeling not to panic come December and realize you have how many cards to get done (along with everything else!) in a very short time!! You can check out all the info and inspiration to play along right HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)
