I think I'm just barely squeaking in on the Merry Monday Challenge for this week. The goal was to create a card with red and gold. I didn't realize how difficult that would be. I've struggled with it!!
The word Merry is a die cut from PTI and the word Christmas is from a Tim Holtz die set. I cut both words from shiny gold paper. The "merry" is inset into the red card base, and the "Christmas" is adhered on top of the red card base. The swirl was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in gold. I also rounded the right corners with a small corner chomper. I added some faux stitching to the edges of the card.
Using some of the same shiny gold paper, I cut the word "merry" from the gold, then inserted the word I had cut from the card base of the previous card. I added red and gold borders to the gold and cut around the letter "y" for a fun look. The "Christmas" was from a PTI set, stamped in Versamark, and heat embossed in gold. I used the deco corner chomper on the right corners. I must say...photographing this shiny stuff is TOO difficult!
I almost didn't post this one, as I'm not to excited about how it turned out. I cut the "joy" sentiment with my Cameo, from both gold and red. It's difficult to see on this, but I off set the two pieces slightly, then adhered them to the card base. The "wishing you" is from Winnie & Walter. I added some dashed lines around the "joy" strip...I think I liked it better BEFORE I added the red dashes!
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by for a visit! Hope you'll come back soon! Your comments are greatly appreciated! Until next time...
