Week 2 of Make My Monday Christmas

Welcome to another week of this month's fabulous theme--Christmas! If you'd like to play along this week, our challenge over at Make My Monday is to create a Christmas card with a clean and simple design. There's a twist, though! The SENTIMENT needs to be the main focus! Isn't that awesome?!

Okay, I am relatively new to CAS style, but I do very much enjoy it! I once again have made more than one card for this week's challenge. Well, one main card and a set of 6 mini cards. Let's take a look!

Main card~Rectangular Christmas~

I love this stamp set! This image is one of my favorites, but I rarely use it! I was excited to see the theme of this week because I knew immediately that I wanted to use it! After coloring it with markers and stamping it, I added my signature clear glitter gel pen and some little rhinestones for extra pizzazz!

Closer look~

Okay, now the little cards. I actually made these to give as a gift for a friend and didn't know what challenge to submit them to, so you get to see them! :)

Here they are~






What do you think? I think they are just darling! Each one measures 3"x3", are embellished with clear glitter gel pen ("Really?" you say! ;D), and have matching envelopes. I think the gift receiver will be thrilled--she is sweet enough to love my cards! :)

I hope you come and join us this week for our challenge! I cannot wait to see all that you talented friends have to show us! Merry stamping! :)

Really gorgeous GDT card Mynnette and love the layout of your design which really shows off the central panel.
Gorgeous little cards too, all looking so different yet going so well together.
Have a great week.
