Merry Monday #12

It’s another Merry Monday Challenge:)  I am really enjoying making my Christmas cards every week:)  I hope you aren’t getting tired of them:(  I made another card with these colors and I really like it, so I used the same colors again.  This is a very simple card.  I’m hoping it looks elegant too;)  Here is the sketch for this week at Merry Monday:

Here is the card I made:

For this card I used SU Basic Black , embossing with a Sizzix folder that has holly & berries.  I’m sorry, I don’t remember the name:(  They seem to use strange names sometimes.  I used SU Real Red with Whisper White die cut “Holly Vine” from Memory Box.  I used White Bakers Twine, also from Stampin’ Up! to tie my bow.  Last, I added some gems that I got from Michaels.

How simple is that?  It actually looks better in person:)  I popped up the Real Red with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I will add a greeting later…..maybe.  I kind of like my greetings on the inside;)

I’m glad you could come by today.  I hope you will give this sketch a try, it doesn’t have to be Christmas;)  I hope you’ll stop by again:)
