Hi and welcome to Merry Monday - the challenge that helps you get a head start on your Christmas cards! Thanks so much to everyone who joined in my challenge last week - the gallery was fabulous!
This week, we have a tic-tac-toe challenge from Kathy.
For my card, I chose the sparkle/die cut/red line and came up with this card:
You're probably wondering where the sparkle is? It's there, in the form of Wink of Stella on all the gifts, but the camera just doesn't pick up that subtle shimmer.
I used a new to me die from Simon Says Stamp's latest release, called Pile of Gifts. I die cut it out of Audrey Blue, Poppy Parade and white cardstock that had been coated with Green Apple ink (cos I don't have any Green Apple cardstock).
I then used the inlaid die-cut technique and placed all the little pieces back into the negative die cut.
The sentiment was inked with Versamark and Poppy Parade ink then clear embossed. Isn't it clever how it just fits around the top bow on the parcel? I'm sure it was designed that way.
Some enamel dots and the Wink of Stella mentioned above finish off the card.
Thanks for visiting. Have you checked out the rest of the Design Team's inspiration? They're sure to delight, as always!
