Merry Christmas to You and Yours

I made a batch of these cards this year and these are the last remaining three that didn't get posted. I'm entering the ABC Christmas Challenge 'Y for Yikes and Z for Zoom', The Male Room 'Christmas/December/Celebrations/Winter Wishes' challenge, Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Use a Sentiment', Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra 'Anything Goes as long as it's Christmas' and Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes'.


Card blanks: 5" x 5" white silk
Stamp: Inkadinkadoo 'Merry Christmas to You and Yours'
Die: Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Wonky Rectangles'
Embossing: Stampendous clear embossing powder, Kars tan embossing mat
Ink: Versafine Olympia Green
Paper: Lili of the Valley 'Classic Christmas'
Other: Gold gel pen

I layered rectangles of holly paper onto gold mirri card and attached them across the centre of the card blank.  I stamped and embossed the sentiment onto white card before die cutting and embossing the image.  I then attached the die cut with foam tape across the centre of the holly panel.

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!

Beautiful design, Kath. The mirri card behind the holly paper makes it so festive and your sentiment just pops off your background.
