Merry Monday #148 - Joyful Christmas

Hello Stampers,
Today's post is for this weeks Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge.  Deanne is the Hostess and she is challenging us to use Red and Green on our cards. I stamped the sentiment and dry embossed the background with Petals A Plenty embossing folder and then stamped the flower and leaves and white embossed them.  The flower is layered with dimensionals and I used yellow pearls in different sizes to finish off the centre of the flower.  I love the red, green and white colour palette.


Stamps: S/U's Joyful Christmas
Card: Whisper White, Real Red, Gumball Green
Ink: Versamark, Real Red and Gumball Green Markers
Finishing Touches: Gumball Green Stitched Ribbon, Yellow Pearls
Cool Tools: Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool, White E/Powder, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Big Shot, Sizzix Petals A Plenty E/Folder, Dble Sided Tape, Dimensionals
Lovely to see you drop by.
