Merry Monday # 83 Stripes, Red, brown...stars or hearts AND The Holiday Online Card Class



Over at The Merry Monday on Lelsey's blog Always Playing with Paper you can find the newest challenge for Merry Monday.  Red, Chocolate, stripes and stars or hearts.  Do you see that I have one little heart on my card?  Plus I have the word heart...that counts too, right?  And of course the stripes are there.
the inside has a gift card holder

All products are Papertrey
stamps:  Peaceful Pinecones, Love Lives Here: Holiay, Think big Favorites #20
paper:  dark chocolate, white, pure poppy, vellum
Super Stripes Embossing Plate
dies:  Bells & Boughs, Peaceful Pincecones
ink:  dark chocolate, pure poppy
Twinery Twine, washi tape

I am also going to enter this into the Hoilday Card Class...I embossed the front of my card and added the vellum to the inside for a little pocket for a gift card.

Thanks for taking a look friends!
Heart Hugs,
Colleen

  11. As if the sentiment isn't great enough, you go ahead and add the embossed panel and the nice chocolatey twine. Such a cute CAS card and that Olive Garden card will be so appreciated. Yum!
