30 in 30 Memory Works Card Challenge: Day 25

Hi All! It’s one month until Christmas! WOO HOOO!!!

Welcome to day 25 of the Memory Works challenge. Are you keeping up? Stop over at the Memory Works blog and check out the Page Maps challenge sketch brought to us by the fabulous Sharon Hill, and don’t forget to visit Sharon at A Day in the Life of a Scrapbooker for a little extra inspiration. You might notice that my card doesn’t quite look like today’s sketch. Well, I did it again and mixed up the sketches. So today’s card goes with the sketch shown on November 18. You can see my card matching Sharon’s sketch for today here.

Here is my take on Sharon’s challenge:

The Christmas Cottage collection by Teresa Collins was perfect for this sketch. The background is cut at 3 3/4 x 5 1/4 inches. The second layer is made up of 2 different papers. The ledger paper is cut at 2 x 3 1/2 inches and the green patterned paper is cut at 1 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches. I used the eyelet border punch [retired] by Stampin’ Up to give some added texture. The “Happy Holidays” embellishment was created with the large oval and scalloped oval punches by Stampin’ Up and a brad from the Christmas Cottage collection, and then popped up with dimensional adhesive. The sentiment is popped up using a double layer of dimensional adhesive. The corners were shaped using a fancy corner punch [retired] by Creative Memories. The sentiment is from the Close To My Heart Pear & Partridge Card Workshop and is stamped in Cocoa Exclusive ink. I stamped the sentiment a second time in Olive Exclusive ink and cut the “A Merry Little” into a banner and popped it up with dimensional adhesive. I then added some bitty opaque mocha adhesive gems by CTMH for a little extra texture and interest.

Here are a couple of close-ups:

Have a peaceful Sunday!

    This is gorgeous! I love that stamp with the TC papers, another reason to consider those papers. Thanks for reminding me to get that stamp out. It is a beauty and I love what you’ve done with it on this card.
