Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #57 {Believe in the Magic}

Welcome to my weekly Christmas card Challenge called "Merry Monday"! Each week, I post a challenge to inspire you to create a Christmas card for your Christmas card stash! We are going back to sketches from now on, so here is this week's Sketch!



This week I decided to flip my sketch on the side and went with some traditional Christmas colours. I used the mustache die from Memory Box to create a Santa feel to my card and then I inked up a Christmas set from My Favorite Things. To give this card a more modern feel, I dry embossed the middle white section with a chevron folder, and added a tag for my sentiment.

{Supplies Used}
Stamps: My Favorite Things
Inks: Memento Basic Black
Papers: Black, White, Red and Tag
Extras: Mustache Die Memory Box, Black Baker's Twine, Big Shot, Embossing folder

Welcome to our Guest Designer this week Lisa Johansen!! She won our challenge a couple of weeks ago! Would you like to be a Guest Designer? Be sure to play along, as our weekly winner is our next Guest Designer!
