Merry Monday #96 and Freshly Made Sketches #124

IMG_3911


A card for Merry Monday #96 and Freshly Made Sketches #124. I started by stamping the holly leaf first and then the sentiment. I die cut a red stitched square to frame the holly panel. Then I cut the panel into three, somewhat, equal pieces and arranged then onto to the frame. I tied the twine and added some dimension to the back of the frame before adhering it to the card base. The card base is grey which might not seem very Christmas-y, but it made the panel pop so much more than white.

What do you think?

What do I think? Really? Stupendous and fantastic. Love the white red and green together, the sequin berries and that grey is such a soft neutral. Oh, and how you broke the sentiment up into three lines, and that yummy twine.

I have a giant painting over my fireplace in 3 panels, just like your card. Now why have I never used it as inspiration? I love the way it looks on your card!
