Cards for Merry Monday #36

I took a few minutes this morning to play along with the latest Merry Monday sketch at Lesley's "Always Playing With Paper" blog.

I have the BEST dental hygenist - and every time I have to go for my check-up I bring her a set of cards. I am going to bring her a set of Christmas cards this next visit, and I know she sends cards overseas so I kept them light & mail friendly.  I made two of the same design - one for Anne's package and one for us to send to friends in Switzerland.

Everything came from a K&Co Christmas paper stack ... the printed panels are from a 12x12" sheet in that stack. I trimmed them off the the printed sheets, and attached them to a polka dot panel, which was then attached right to the front of the card.

The snowflakes were punched from another coordinating scrap in the paper stack and I added a little glitter glue to the centers.

Some of the words on the printed panel are foiled, so that makes them a little more special. 

Thanks for stopping by today!
