Reaching for the Stars (MM38)


Another Merry Monday card to share today! Next week will be my last….boo…..:-( This is the sketch for this week. As you can tell from my picture above, I turned it on it’s side, I felt this worked better with the stamp sets I wanted to use.

For this card, I decided to use VERY traditional colours but I wanted to use two various stamp sets together that are not meant to be together.

The base of this card is Real Red. I’ve added a strip of designer paper which is scalloped and a sentiment was stamped underneath.

The panel is just a strip of Old Olive card stock. I cut a little nick in the end to make a wee banner and folded it over a few times at the top and, for a little extra detail, I added a couple of staples.

For the image part, I decided to use Snow Much Fun and Lean On Me. I loved the idea of the little boy reaching up into a Christmas tree to either decorate it or look to find hidden treasures.

Of course there is a little bit of sparkle to the tree using some Dazzling Details. This card was so much fun to make!

So I hope you’ll check out that the rest of the Merry Monday design team has come up with this week and that you’ll play along!
