Merry Monday #104
Happy Monday friends! Our friend Karen has chosen the Merry Monday challenge for this week and she wants us to use the colors slate, kraft, white or cream on our Christams cards.
These colors were definitely a challenge for me. I really wanted to add some red to the mix but that wasn't one of the colors. :) I stamped and embossed my sentiment using Smoky Slate embossing powder. I also wanted to use wood veneer stars on my card but I don't have any. Need to remedy that soon. I decided to try to make my own using Kraft paper. I used the Holiday Shapes die from Simon Says to cut out my stars. I stacked 3 on top of each other to give them dimension. I also covered them with my Wink of Stella glitter brush and glossy accents. I am pretty happy with how they turned out and think they resemble wood veneer stars a bit. What do you think?
I hope you will join us this week to get a head start on your Christmas cards for 2014. Make sure you check out the other DT members cards over at the Merry Monday challenge blog.
Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
