Wow, it’s hard to believe, Christmas is about a month away!! I have been making my Christmas cards faithfully all year with Merry Monday, so I have a good supply of cards to mail:) Here is their last sketch for this year:
Okay, I didn’t use circles, I hope squares are ok;) I used a Lace’ template to cut my design. Lace’ templates are no longer made:( Lucky for me, I found a number of them before they were all gone:) There are some new templates out there that you can use in a Sizzix or such, but I did mine the “old fashioned” way. I cut by hand with a craft knife.
Stampin’ Up! Early Espresso for the very back, on top of that is Old Olive that I stamped with Pines & Poinsettias (retired), using VersaMark ink. It makes a nice subtle imprint:) I cut Very Vanilla with my SU Scallop Trim Border punch. Then Real Red and finally paper from Berry Bouquet (retired) I believe you can still get it in digital form from Stampin’ Up!
I sponged Old Olive over the back of my paper before cutting with my die. The sentiment is from Hand Penned Holidays which I embossed with SU silver embossing powder. Finally I added a little gem from my stash. Not as hard as it sounds:) lol
Be sure to check out Merry Monday before they go on their “winter” break!
Thank for coming by today:) Hmmmm, I’m not sure what I’ll be making next, I guess we will all be surprised:)
