Merry Monday #33

Hi there

The card I have for you today is based on this week's Merry Monday #33 sketch.  If you haven't started your Christmas cards yet, then these weekly sketches are a great way to kick start your stash. Did you know there are only 95 days left until Christmas? There are lots of lovely new holiday products in the latest Annual and Holiday Catalogues from Stampin' Up!, so no excuses for not finding something to get you inspired.  Here is the sketch:

The colour combo is quite a contrast to the jewel colours I have used recently in my Christmas cards, but still quite rich.  I have kept to Early Espresso, Very Vanilla and Raspberry Ripple that make up the design in the background paper from the 'Candlelight Christmas' Speciality DSP pack. This is definitely one that you need to see to fully appreciate. The lovely new Champagne Glimmer paper adds sparkle.

I have used the new 'Evergreen' stamp set for the main panel. The solid tree image has been stamped in Crumb Cake ink and then the words of 'Silent Night' have been stamped over it in Versamark and then heat embossed with the new Early Espresso embossing powder.  This is a very fine script font, but it is very clear to read after embossing.
