Merry Christmas!

To all my stamping friends…A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Even though today is Christmas, it is still the start of an SUO challenge!  Robin, our challenge ‘mom’, picked a perfect challenge for today…make it blue!  I decided to do a simple card to wish everyone Merry Christmas today!

The base of the card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 Whisper White.  I took another piece of Whisper White, ran it through the Polka Dotted folder and added to the card front.  Next I took strip of Whisper White, embossed the tree from Lovely as a Tree in Whisper White and sponged around it using Midnight Muse.  I ripped some Whisper White and Silver Glimmer to make the ‘snow’ on the bottom, added some 1/4″ Silver Glimmer circles and a Silver Glimmer Star on the tree to finish it off.  Next I added a strip of the Silver Glimmer along the side and then a Finishing Touches edgelit in Midnight Muse.  This panel is added to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the Merry Christmas in Midnight Muse, punched with the 3/4″ Circle Punch, sponged around the edges, added to a 1″ Silver Glimmer Circle, then a 1 1/4″ Midnight Must Scallop Circle.  This is added to the card front using dimensionals to finish it off.
