Merry Monday #146 Guest Designer



Hello Friends!

I'm so excited to be back again for another guest spot at the Merry Monday Challenge! Thank you Nina so much for choosing my card :)
 I love making Christmas cards all year long, and it's fun to have a challenge to give me a little jump start on my inspiration! 



The theme this week is that old guy we all love so much, Santa Claus! 


a

I first cut out a stitched rectangle of watercolor paper and sponged some Peacock Feathers distress ink on it, then spritzed some water on it for the snowy look. Next, I cut out the snowy hill with the same stitched rectangle die and the stitched hills. I colored Santa, his little bunny friend and the tree with Copic markers and cut them all out. I stuck the tree behind the snowy hill and glued it flat, but added foam tape to Santa and bunny friend. I then cut out three of the joy sentiments and glued them all together. I glued that down and then adhered the whole watercolored piece to the front of a top folded card base.

Supplies:
Santa-Papertrey Ink
Bunny-Lawn Fawn
Tree- Simon Says Stamps
Joy-Lawn Fawn
Stitched dies- Lawn Fawn

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hop on over to Merry Monday to see what the other designers have created! :)

Hugs,

Kay :)

  1. Ooooh, congratulations, Kay! It's no wonder they asked you again, your work is always so happy and festive. This card is no exception. I am really enjoying seeing all the scenes you are creating on your cards. I love the use of the Peacock Feathers, it's such a happy blue. Tucking the tree behind the hill is smart and your Santa and bunny look very festive. Such a joyful card! Excellent work! :)
