Merry Monday #43

This weeks Merry Monday challenge at Always Playing With Paper is their last one of the year so I really wanted to play along. I've been so busy making Christmas tags and Wine Bottle Hangers I haven't participated in many challenges lately. Below is the sketch followed by my take on it.

I went with turquoise, red and snowflakes - all of which make me happy.

The three stacked snowflakes were cut using dies by MFT (My Favorite Things) - they cut SO nicely! Then I dabbed the centers with blue glitter glue for some seasonal sparkle. I stamped the Merry Christmas (Stampin' Up) on a scrap of white card stock, then cut it out with a MFT banner die. Since the die only notches one end, I re-inserted the strip back in the die and ran it through the Big Shot again to get a matching notch on the other end.

I have to get my cards addressed and in the mail soon - usually they are ready to go by December 1st!

Thanks for stopping by today.
