MCV49 - Merry Christmas


Here's my card for this week's Muse: ChristmasVisions challenge where Cornelia gave us a really fun inspiration, using some unusual crafting supplies!




I focused on Cornelia's:
-Christmas tree theme
-colour scheme (various greens, red, gold, grey and white)
-stripey trees
-popped up sentiment

I used:
-Papertrey Holiday Cheer
-Papertrey Grand Ampersand
-Paper Smooches Shadows
-Penny Black Dots die (this is perfect for a project like this! It has many different sized dots - one pass through the Big Shot gets you all the ornaments you need!)
-MFT Pierced Circle Squares
-Hero Arts Ombre Green Ink
-Altenew Grey Inks (Lava Rock, Evening Grey)
-Red mirror card

Love it Ardyth - the green on the trees contrasted with the red baubles is fabulous.

A perfect Ardyth take on Cornelia's card! I'm very tempted to play...

The trees are so cute but the shadows steal the show! I know they are meant to play a 'supporting role' but the idea, your choice of color and the fact that they TOTALLY grounds the images is awesome! Sweet little ornaments too :)

This one looks so great! (And I only looked at the shapes at first; not in the X-mascardsmood at all...)

Yummy bright greens with the shiny red ornaments, Ardyth ... and gorgeous gold embossing ... the simple font is fab with the graphic style of the trees! Hugs & bisous, Anita :)
