It's Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Ours was busy but still super fun. We got to go see the movie Trolls and, shockingly, it was really cute. Can you tell I wasn't super excited to see it but that's what you do when you are a mom. The boys had a blast and with a massive nerf war on Sunday, their weekend was the best ever. Now, it's Monday and for some reason it always seems to drag on. So, I was trying to think of a way to make it more fun. What better way to start a Monday than with a Christmas card?? I can't think of anything better! Ha ha!
In case you haven't already noticed, I'm slightly addicted to the Lil' Inker Designs Rustic Christmas stamps. I just can't help myself. I keep reaching for them and they pair SO nicely with my holiday kit from Clique Kits. If you haven't checked out their kits, you must! They are jam packed with fun stuff. I have a feeling I will be starting a subscription soon since I'm having so much fun with this one. All the past kits look amazing too! I used paper, stickers, and little extras (those asterisks...hello!!!) on this card. I started with this fun paper and then started layering vellum that I inked and cut with both the Fringe Scalloped Circles Dies and Border Builders die set. I was inspired by Jen's gorgeous card to color my city from Rustic Christmas stamps in colors that coordinate with my paper before cutting it out with the Rustic Christmas dies. I stamped some trees on the vellum and then layered a tree sticker from my kit in front. Next, I cut Hope from black card stock using the Brush Script Christmas Word Dies. I added a sentiment strip and then some fun asterisks from the Clique Kit along with some clear sequins. Here's a closer look:
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and I hope your week is starting off on a high. Have a great one and I'll see you here tomorrow! Here's what I used for my card:
