Monochromatic Christmas Card Challenge

 Over the weekend on my card swap group, the challenge was for us to make a Monochromatic Christmas card.  It was all I could do to get to my craft room this weekend for a few minutes.  How about you?  

So here it is late Sunday night and I'm scrambling to come up with something for the challenge.   I've landed on Penny Black's 'Snowy' Stamp and a Slimline card design.

I started by stamping the snowman on Neenah 110# card stock and colored the hat and scarf with a Copic marker.  I die cut the image using Spellbinders Labels Eight die and added diamond stickles around the fur on top of the hat and on the buttons.  

I cut the purple Scalloped Stitched slimline piece using Gina Marie's Scalloped Stitched Slimline die and added to the slimline card base.  I used Sizzix Thinlets Die Set Christmas Phrases 2 words to die cut "Holiday Cheer' out of coordinating purple card stock and added all to the card base.  To finish the card, I added a thin silver metallic thread that has bling woven within and tied a loopy bow at the top.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.

  1. Such a cutie, love the purple with the snowman. The scalloped die works so well with the shape card. Thank you so much for joining us in our challenge at QKR Stampede this week. Good Luck and looking forward to seeing you again in our next challenge.
