The talented Lesley Croghan at Always Playing with Paper has a beautiful inspiration photo for our challenge this week for the Merry Monday Christmas Card Club challenge. Here's the photo and details for this week's challenge:
I hope you like my card! I managed to pull all the challenge elements together and I'm pleased with the results! I have punched berries, ribbon and a stamped sentiment in red; an embossed striped panel in dark brown; and a base of vanilla that has been stamped with shimmery gold sprigs of holly (it doesn't show up very well in the photo, but you can see a bit of shimmer on the upper right sprig). This card was super simple to make and you could easily make several at once. It's clean and simple, yet very elegant!
Visit us at Merry Monday and have a peek at all of the wonderful cards the Merry Makers made for this challenge! Then join us and get a jump on those Christmas cards! When December rolls around, you'll be so glad you did!
