Merry Monday #288 - NO STAMPING

Hello friends.  Deanne is our hostess this week at Merry Monday and she would like you to create a Christmas card with NO STAMPING!!


Yep, NO STAMPING!!  That means "dies" to me and I'm definitely OK with that!!  :0)  And I had just happened to receive two new dies from AliExpress that were perfect for this challenge, and I came up with this:

This was really a very easy CAS card to make!  I started with a white card base, and then added a white die cut plaid background...at least I think it's supposed to be a plaid background die!  Next I die cut the Merry Christmas from Cherry Cobbler cs and then die cut a 2nd time with Gumball Green cs for the holly leaves.  After attaching the leaves and berries on the inside of the circle, I added Glossy Accents to them to make them shine and really stand out!

After the leaves and berries dried, I finished my card by simply adding some Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine (SU!) to the top.  Easy peasy and I love how it turned out!!

There is LOTS of FABULOUS inspiration from the DT to get you started this week, so check it all out and then play along with us...we can't wait to see what YOU come up with without using any stamping!  Check it all out right HERE.

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