Happy Monday! I won't be home most of the day today. We are going to my mother in laws house for lunch and then again for supper. I love not having to cook!
Well, it's Monday and it's that time again! Time for Monday's clean & simple challenge. Today's challenge is a ways to use it challenge. We were to create a card using dimensionals (pop up dots).
I decided to make another Christmas card. I've been making lots of holiday cards lately. I'm still hoping that I'll have enough holiday cards created throughout the year and it won't be so hectic once I'm ready to send them out. I sort of like the idea of having them all made ahead of time.
Here's what I did to create my card. (It was really easy to make). First, I took a scrap piece of paper and I stamped the tree image. Then I stamped some snowflakes along the top of the trees, next I sponged the background using Brocade Blue ink making the sponging heavier at the top and lighter towards the bottom.
Then all I did was to carefully punch out four squares using my 1 1/4" square punch and then adhere them to my Night of Navy background paper. For the top of my window I created a valance using a scrap piece of decorative paper and I used my scallop border punch along the bottom edge.
For the top of the window treatment I just punched a few holes and threaded some silver cording and then ended it with two brads, to make it look like a curtain rod. The valance part of my window is adhered to my card using dimensionals. It might be hard to see in my picture, but I finished my card by adding some DD glitter along the bottom of the trees. My sentiment is from SU’s Snow Swirled.
Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday!
