Merry Monday #26 - Christmas with Curly Cute & Tags til Christmas

Another week and a new sketch with Merry Monday Challenge#26 hosted by Lesley Croghan over at Always Playing with Paper. The idea behind it is getting a head start on Christmas cards. I figured that by the time Christmas comes around, I'll have enough done not to be pressured on making them all at once.

If you would like to get started on your Christmas cards early, this site would be the one. Click here to go directly to the challenge.
Here is mine below: 
Started this card with the embossing folder: Snow Burst for the background in Whisper White than went looking for some Christmas DSP and found Letters to Santa. For me, I love this paper and goes so well with Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso.

If you click on the photo, you can see it at it's best since it keeps changing the look for html version and after repeated attempts can't adjust anymore....unless it's just me.

Used the stamp set: Tags til Christmas along with the macthing Ornament punch. Added a little Baker's Twine to make it look like it's hanging. Used Stampin Dimensionals under the Cherry Cobbler mat and under the Ornament. Final touch added this little ribbon and rhinestone.

For the sentiment, I used the set: Curly Cute and Cherry Cobbler ink. Hope you enjoy and have fun creating!!
