Merry Monday Hearts

One of my favourite Christmas card challenges is the Merry Monday one.  The theme this time was proposed by my friend, Bonnie - "Hearts".  Quite challenging for Christmas cards, I thought!  But I ended up making two.

First up is one using a never before used stamp I bought a few months ago and had forgotten about until I went searching for stamps for the "Hearts" challenge:


I coloured it with Copics and placed it on a dark green cardbase. Then topped it with another layer of the cream cs with a circular opening, cut with an inverted scalloped die that makes me think of holly. Then I cut a frame for the opening using two sizes of the inverted scallop die.

Supplies:
Stamps: Stamp It Australia Wreath, Hero Arts sentiment
Paper: dark green and cream cs
Paper Size: A2
Ink: Archival Jet Black
Accessories: Copics, Spellbinders inverted scallops dies, dimensionals

  4. What a clean and fresh design Susan and I love the inverted scallop circle - I've never seen that before. I love how the sentiment gently curves to echo the circle!
