We've created cards at Merry Monday this week featuring the chalkboard technique! Lesley Croghan at Always Playing with Paper is our host for this weekly challenge. Be sure to visit Lesley's blog to see all the beautiful cards created by the Merry Makers design team. Here's our inspiration photo for this week:
I created a card using an image from the clear mount Christmas set by Recollections. I love the banner, the holly and the different typography used in the design! Since the design is large and prominent, I went with simple and plain for the matting and card base. The double-matting in Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green really makes this festive sentiment stand out nicely! I hope you like the finished results as much as I do!
