Merry Monday Christmas challenge

Wowee – how rare is this – a whole 2 (!!!) posts in less than a week??  But I just couldn’t resist making up this Christmas card for the MerryMonday Christmas challenge this week.  With a great challenge of making a card to reflect the wonderful Silent Night hymn, it was really a doddle.

I adore easel cards when I can get the time to make them & in particular if I can make them without flowers so they’ll be easier & cheaper for recipients to post.   And for that purpose, I find pyramid designs are great as they add a bit more height without being excessive (you can determine the height better).

So this card uses stash background paper on front & base with a contrast panel of Craft Creations silver wording paper.  Then I diecut a couple of silver border strips from the Spellbinders Ironworks die set. 

I pyramaged up the Christmas image and matted it on some silver mirri card.  The “stop” bar with the Silent Night text is computer printed and then run through a Xyron before coating in plenty of holographic glitter.  I’d often cut similar strips off old Christmas cards before thinking I could probably make my own, & since discovering how easy it is, I’ve run wild!!

The inside as usual is decorated to complement the outside and a tag provided for the message. :)

This is a card I know will please its recipient immensely & I hope you like it too.

Blessings. :)

So this card is being entered into:
