Merry, Merry, Merry

Hi!  It's time for our next Merry Monday challenge.  This week our hostess is Bonnie and she wants us to have a heart on our Christmas card.


Isn't that a pretty graphic?  For my card, I came up with a CAS but rather time-consuming card featuring lots of die-cuts.


I die-cut several of the "merry" word from PTI's Wet Paint Holiday dies.  On one of the words I sponged Green Apple and Green Leaf inks in an ombre fashion.  I die-cut the "Christmas" word after sponging some white cardstock with Schoolhouse Red ink.  In hindsight, I should have sponged an ombre pattern in reds too.

I layered all the die cuts onto a white card base and finally finished with a heart die cut and coated with Glossy Accents.  As you can see, I hooked part of the "C" through the loop in the "y" for some added interest.


A very simple card!

Thanks for visiting.  The rest of the design team have some wonderful cards featuring hearts so be sure to check them out.

Products used:

Ink:  Green Apple, Green Leaf, Schoolhouse Red (SSS)
Cardstock:  White
Accessories:  Wet Paint Holiday dies (PTI), Joy to the Woods dies (Lawn Fawn)

Cheers
Karren
