Merry Monday Sketch - Sounding Joy

Pin It Now! We're almost halfway to Christmas, and I have to jump with joy because I got a copy of the NEW SU HOLIDAY MINI today! What a way to get in the mood for Merry Monday :) The goodies in this catalog...the stamps, papers, and embellies, are very trendy and elegant. I can't wait for a preorder.

There's a sketch for Merry Monday this week. I pulled out a piece of last year's Candlelight Christmas paper and built from there.
The banner end is die cut from the largest Apothecary Accents Framelits, by tucking the end through so it's the only part that gets cut. The large red scallops are from the Tasteful Trim die. Finally, the kraft die cut (Pocketful of Posies, Spring Mini) is heat embossed with the lovely sentiment from The Sounding Joy :) LOVE that beautiful stamp set!
So check out the sketch, and get inspired...apparently it's not too early to (almost) order brand new Christmas supplies! Visit the MM sketch at Lesley's Always Playing With Paper blog and say hi to the design team - what pretty cards!

STAMPS: The Sounding Joy
INK: Craft White, Real Red, Versamark
PAPER: Candlelight Christmas, Real Red, Very Vanilla
EMBELLISHMENTS: Kraft tag: Pocketful of Posies, Very Vanilla seam binding ribbon, Basic Pearls

Have a blessed and creative day! ~ Erika


  1. Very pretty card, I love your beautiful bow. Thank you for joining us for Merry Monday this week.

  2. Wow, Erika! What a great idea to diecut the middle banner with the Apothecary Accents and emboss it! This is a wonderful Christmas card! Thanks so much for sharing it with us at Merry Monday!
