MTSC Very Merry



Good Wednesday Morning Peeps. Two more sleeps til the jolly man in the red suit pops in!!! HO! HO! HO!

I have a fun little snowflake card to share with you today. I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge for this card.

The base is made with chocolate chip and then very vanilla and the DS paper comes from the retired Au Chocolat DS pack. I cut a snowflake out of very vanilla with the sizzix Snowflake #2 die. I added a button from the Latte buttons. The sentiment is from, uh....not sure which stamp set as the "very merry" stamp was just sitting on the shelf when I was looking for sentiment to use. So I grabbed it and stamped it with chocolate chip ink onto some scrap very vanilla and used the word window punch to punch it out. I then punched a mat for it with the modern label punch and added another button.

I finished it off with a punched border piece in very vanilla with a MS punch. I added this punched edge to the back of the base with the border to the top. This is a treatment I have seen used around the blog world for awhile.

Well, that is all for today, I want to wish all my blog readers a Very Merry Christmas and a big thank you for all who comes by, I really appreciate you guys!

HAPPY STAMPING!!!!!
