Merry Monday #285 Dashing by with a Holiday Hi

Merry Monday, friends! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! I just got back from a fabulous Spring Break vacation to Disneyland/California Adventure with my family! It was so wonderful and it was nice to just forget about real life and have fun! 

This week, Nina has asked us to add a ribbon to our cards! I don't know if a paper ribbon is cheating or not, but that is what I used. 


I think this Simple Gift Bow Die almost looks just like the real thing, don't you think? It was the perfect touch to add to this snowy scene. To begin, I die cut the newly released Shape Shifters Oval 1 Die out of some Pool cardstock. I then heat embossed the snow fall background stamp set using Wow Puff Powder for a realistic effect. I also die cut the snowy portions using the Round Off Edgers Die collection

I colored and die cut the deer and placed them onto the card using a triple stack of foam squares. The white layer underneath is dry embossed using the ever popular "knitted" folder from Richard Garay.

I couldn't fit the sentiment onto the front, so I decided to jazz up the inside with a gold embossed sentiment as well as a few sprigs of greenery. I hope you'll get a chance to play along this week! Thanks for fluttering by!

Fabulous paper ribbon and bow, Kelly! Perfect for your deer duo on that layered label and over top of the knitted embossing! Great coloring on those sweet deer too!!

Adorable card, Kelly! I love the Shape Shifter Oval. I am using it a lot lately! Thanks for reminding me that the greeting doesn't always have to be on the front of the card. Your use on the inside was the perfect ending.
