Merry Christmas to You and Yours

The current challenge at Merry Monday is 'Getting Sentimental' where the sentiment is the main focus of the card.  I've used one of my favourite stamps for this card and am also entering the ABC Christmas Challenge 'G for Green or Gold' (I've used both), the Sparkles Christmas Challenge 'CAS Christmas' and the Classic Design Team Open Challenge 'Anything Goes'.  The paper and card were from my snippets drawer so I'm rushing across to Pixie's Crafty Workshop before the playground gates close.


Card blank: 5" x 5" white pearl
Stamp: Inkadinkado 'Merry Christmas to You and Yours'
Die: Spellbinders Nestabilities Wonky Rectangles
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat, Stampendous clear embossing powder
Ink: Versafine Olympia Green
Other: Gold gel pen
Snippets: Gold mirri and white pearl card, green patterned paper

I trimmed the snippet of green paper, layered it onto gold mirri and attached it across the centre of the card.  I stamped and embossed the sentiment onto white pearl card.  This was die cut and embossed before being attached to the card front with foam tape.  To finish I used a gold gel pan to colour the stars.

Lovely card Kath - and I can totally see why you love that beautiful sentiment so much. It really can take centre stage almost on its own!
