Today's card is for Merry Monday 71.
I've been wanting to play along with Merry Monday for quite some time now. As I said in the past few weeks, the kids are now back in school, so I have a bit more time to stamp.
I'm loving the new Thinlits Expressions dies....they are so fun! And, I was over the moon when I saw the burlap trim that SU came out with! I love the look of it!
I had already had the "merry" cut out and laying on my desk...a reject from a previous project. I decided that's where my starting point would be. I browsed through my DSP's and found the espresso from last year's Christmas print pack called Festival of Prints and the
Pool Party from this year's Winter Frost pack.
I also knew I wanted to have some sort of stamped pattern on my main focal circles, so I stamped the big chevron oval from Oh Hello in Early Espresso in and punched out a few circles. Next I used one of the hexagons from Six Sided Sampler, stamped it with Pool Party ink and punch out with a smaller circle punch. I adhered them to the burlap with large glue dots. Regular snail adhesive will not stick very well.
The snowflake is from my Northern Frost decorative strip die. It's long retired, but I LOVE all the different snowflakes it offers. I popped the snowflake up on a dimensional.
