Merry Monday #114!

You are going to love Katie's Challenge for this week at Merry Monday. What's not to like about Sparkle, Shimmer and Shine! Take a peek:

I used lots of different things for my sparkle, shimmer and shine. Can you spot them all?

I decided to try an idea for an easel card which opens and sits like this:

I used a disposable battery-operated candle light to illuminate the tree embossed on Vellum Cardstock:

You'll also notice Rhinestone Jewels and Silver Glimmer Paper on my card:

If you are wondering how I created my card, the pieces below are what I cut with my Big Shot Machine. I cut the Deco Labels Framelits shape by keeping the fold intact at the top. I then added the next size smaller Deco Label on one end and lined up my cutting pad over the label & cardstock only up to the center of it and cut. By doing this, the portion covered with the cutting pad is what gets cut. The remainder doesn't because the cutting pad is not covering it. I then used a ruler to cut a straight line and removed the inside portion:

This is what my card looks like with the candle turned off:

And with the candle turned on. It looks awesome in the dark also:

I hope you enjoyed my card for today as I had a blast creating it. Make sure you visit our team of Merry Makers as I'm sure the ideas and inspiration will wow you!
