Merry Monday #251 - Monochromatic Blues

Hello friends.  Welcome to another Merry Monday challenge where this week Debbie is asking for a Christmas card done in Monochromatic Blues.


Here's what I came up:


The Joyfully Announcing (by Morningstar Stamps) stamp was one of my very first Christmas stamps when I first started stamping back in 1999 and still continues to be one of my favorite stamps!  I absolutely LOVE the idea of sending out birth announcements welcoming the birth of our Savior!!  :0)  I used Night of Navy ink to stamp the sentiment and then used Blueberry Sky ink to stamp the Holy Family (Stampendous) over the sentiment.  I used a SU! (Pine Bough) embossing folder on my top layer of Night Of Navy cardstock and then cut out an oval window for the images to show through.  A few blue and clear sequins finished off my card.

Make sure you check out the rest of the DT's inspiration and then play along with us.  Can't wait to see a gallery full of Monochromatic Blue Christmas cards!  Check it all out right HERE.

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