I thought I'd throw a Christmas card into the mix this week so I can play along in the Merry Monday Challenge #220 -- "How will you decorate your door?" The last time I played a MM challenge the theme was gold, black, and white, which I liked more than I expected, so I went with that again, but added a pop of merry red.
I probably could have decorated an honest to goodness real wreath more quickly than I made this card. Lots of die cutting and arranging small parts. The "merry" is three layers of black topped with a layer of red. Underneath it all is a twig wreath which is part of a Halloween die set.
I used gold mirror cardstock, other gold cardstock, gold glitter paper, and a gold glitter pen. All the white is Neenah 110 lb. The dies are as follows:
- Cheery Lynn Happy Halloween Twiggy Wreath
- Cheery Lynn Holly Corner
- Poppystamps Small Blooming Poinsettia
- Impression Obsession Christmas Icons
- Memory Box Merry Cursive
