Happy Wonderful Christmas!




Hi everybody!

 Today I'm happy to be a Guest Designer for Merry Monday! The challenge is to create a card with ornaments in silver and blue. 

That was easy with the Memory Box Cabrini ornament die!

I cut out a couple of ornaments with silver foil paper. Then I cut a couple more with Stampin Up's All is Calm designer paper,(LOVE THAT PAPER) and inlaid them in the silver ones. 

 I also cut out some snowflakes with Poppystamps Frozen Flakes border die...which I think is just a gorgeous die. I love the detail in the snowflakes, and they cut so crisp and clean. It belongs to a friend of mine, who let me cut out a few. It's now on my ever growing "gotta have this die" list!

The sentiment is my favorite for this Christmas, and I find myself reaching for it all the time. It's from Stampin' Up's Wondrous Wreath. I like the font, and well...Christmas is WONDERFUL, isn't it? Inside I stamped,"Rejoicing with you in the birth of Christ our Lord, and wishing you all the blessings of His love." That is wonderful...the birth of Christ our Saviour!

I also added some pearls and silver sequins, and backed the whole thing on SU's pool party card stock.

I think the color combo of blue and silver is SO pretty, be sure to head on over to Merry Monday and check out all the cards!
