Card for Merry Monday Challenge 44

They are shaking things up over at Merry Monday, and instead of having only sketches they are going to have other challenges as well. This week is a colour challenge:

 I used the same Echo Park scrapbooking kit as yesterday's card, and since I don't have Island Indigo I substituted Baja Breeze.

The snowflake panel was cut from a 12x12 sheet of different panels - it had the perfect colours of snowflakes on it!  The blue card stock panel was embossed with a textured folder to give it just a little more interest.

The deer was stamped then fussy cut and popped up with foam tape. I coloured his scarf with a red Copic marker, and added glitter glue to his nose and the center of the snowflakes.

This is an A2 card, and will go towards the 40 or so Christmas cards my Mom sends out every year.

Making single Christmas cards is sort of new to me ... I usually do multiples. I am going to enjoy making a couple of single Christmas cards each week, and will be able to do matching envelopes this way.

Thanks for stopping by today.
