MERRY MONDAY GUEST DESIGNER

A few weeks ago my card was chosen as the winner on Merry Monday and consequently I was asked to be their guest designer for this week.  The challenge is to use a heart on a Christmas card and I did a pretty literal translation of the inspiration photo.


I die cut the pine branches (Sizzix TH Holiday Greens) and spattered with Tsukineko frost white ink - also did the card base.  The hearts were cut from a Cuttlebug die and the sentiment is from Ellen Hutson Cozy Christmas.  The card base is Sahara Sand from SU - cut 1/4" from the side so the branches could hang over a bit.

Merry Monday is a great way to get started on your Christmas cards so hop on over and join the challenge - you have two weeks to get a card done.

Thanks again to the Merry Monday team for asking me to be their guest designer this week and thanks for stopping by.  Betty
