Merry Monday #24

Here's my card for the Merry Monday #24 Christmas card challenge. I pulled out some "Jingle" dsp from LilyBeeDesigns for the background, and added some Cherry Cobbler borders and ornaments. The Hearfelt Creation ornaments were embossed with silver ep and die cut with matching dies. I added some silver cording and bows to string them up. The sentiment is from Warm Words (r).
Here's this week's sketch....


I posted the following card over on SCS earlier today for the TLC381 to use half of an element on your card, and the CAS174 challenge to use a white layer on white.


For my half element, I die cut a top note & cut it in half, then embossed it with the swiss dots ef. I trimmed around the edge to give it a layered look when I placed it on top of a full top note die cut. I stamped the sentiment with soft grey ink, added some ribbon and a store bought bow with cluster pearls, and that was all she wrote! I needed to add more sympathy cards to my stash, and I love white on white for that occasion.

Thanks for stopping by today, and I wish you a wonderful week ahead!

Both cards are absolutely beautiful! I love the Christmas card (I need to do some more - I think I have two done so far) and the pretty colors you have used. The Sympathy card is perfectly done all in white - love the layers and textures. Wow!

Your Christmas card is so pretty. I do love ornaments on a card...and in real life. My collection is overboard. Ha

The sympathy card is sooooooo beautiful. I wanted to play in that challenge but no way could I get around to it.

Workmen in my house today...I'm going nuts with all this mess. Ugh!

Caorl, I think I'm just going to CASE everything you make because I love each and every one of your cards. This holiday card is so sweet and cheery all at the same time. Your second card was knocked out of the park. This come with such elegance and grace. This will definitely make someone feel better. Love that little store bought bow also. I'm just in awe of your design capabilities every day.
