Merry Monday #74!

Happy Monday everyone! Today I am honored to be a guest designer for this week at the Merry Monday Challenge. I was chosen as the "Top Pick" for their challenge #72 so that awarded me a designer spot. Thanks girls!

For this week we have an inspiration photo and instructions to use Green, White and Woodgrain:

How fun is that! Here is my card as guest designer for this week:

Do you recognize the branches that my ornaments are hanging from? They are the tree stamp images from the "Evergreen" stamp set. I turned them sideways! And if you look closely at the photo below, you will see all the shimmer & shine on my ornaments:

I inked the snowflake images using VersaMark Ink first and then inked my stamp again in Gumball Green Ink. By inking both inks together, the ink stays wet so you can emboss it. I sprinkled Clear Embossing Powder and set with my Heat Tool. While the snowflakes were still hot, I sprinkled a 2nd time using Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and used my Heat Tool a 2nd time.

The Woodgrain Embossing Folder did a great job on the Early Espresso C'oredinations Cardstock as I lightly sanded the embossing.
Make sure you visit Merry Monday this week to view all of the Christmas projects to give you inspiration and maybe join in with us! Thank you to Merry Monday for inviting me to participate this week!
