Embellished Events for Merry Monday #63

Greetings, Stampers! You haven't tuned in to the wrong post. Yes, I'm making a Christmas card in May. I'm getting a jump start on my holiday cards and playing along with the Merry Monday challenge. This card features the Embellished Events Stamp Set and my favorite Christmas Designer Series Paper, Be of Good Cheer. This paper is still available but retiring on June 3. I love it so much, I ordered two packages!

Lesley At Merry Monday has a fun layout for us this week. I had so many ideas for it but finally settled on this one. There are so many amazing samples by the design team, too, I think I pinned them all! Why don't you pay them a visit or play along?

This card was really easy and fun to assemble. Stamp the image, punch a few layers, emboss the background, then just glue it all together!  I'll have to keep this one in the memory bank for future mass production.

Stamp Sets: Embellished Events

This is fabulous Sandy! Love the clean-ness of your card and the embossing folder you've used to add texture is one of my favourites for Christmas! Thanks for joining us at Merry Monday this week!
