Merry Monday #25

I am really starting to "dig" the Merry Monday challenges. Lesley is wonderful at sketching. And don't forget, these are all Christmas cards to get your stash going so you don't sweat it out by December!

Here is this week's sketch:
And my card:

I did a little bit of fussy-cutting this week. The center flower was inked and stamped 3 times, once on the 3" round cardstock layer and twice more on a separate piece of Whisper White Cardstock to cut out. The smaller flower was stamped twice:

I water-colored the flowers using the ink from my Primrose Petals Ink pad and a Blender Pen. I then added Dazzling Details to the centers of the flowers. All of the flower layers are popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

Card Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Primrose Petals, Whisper White
  • DSP: In-color Patterns Paper Stack
  • Inks: StazOn Jet Black, Primrose Petals
  • Accessories: 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon
  • Stamps: Everything Eleanor, Teeny Tiny Wishes
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, 3" Circle Die, 3 1/2" Circle Die, Word Window Punch, Ribbon Punch, Dazzling Details
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by to visit me!
