Merry Monday #203 - Ombre and Glitter

Hello friends.  The challenge over at Merry Monday this week is to use ombre colors and glitter on your Christmas card.  I had just ordered a couple new sets of ink cubes from Altenew, and they package them 4 inks to a set, with the 4 colors being graduated...perfect for the ombre technique!  I used the Green Fields set and used 3 of the shades of green (Evergreen, Forest Glades, & Frayed Leaf) to ink up some white cardstock, and then used a PTI die set called Merry & Bright to cut out 3 trees.  Take a look:


Each tree consists of 4 pieces plus the star, and I mounted them on a MFT's Blueprints #27 stitched and scalloped layer.  The "peace" was die cut from silver glitter paper using a die from PTI's Wonderful Words: Holiday Collection.  This was such a quick and easy card to make, and I really love the CAS look to it!  May have to make a few more of these to bulk up my stash a little!  :0)


Make sure you check out all the beautiful cards from the design team this week, and then play along.  You can find all the details right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!  :0)
