Joy--Merry Monday #149

March 9, 2015

Today I am playing along with the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge.  This week Debbie is the hostess.  Monochromatic Blue is the theme for the week.  The Design Team has so many wonderful projects for inspiration!  Make sure you visit all of the blogs! 

I love Christmas cards in blue so, I went searching for some blue papers in my stash.  I came across two different sheets that would work perfectly.  I pulled out a new die that I purchased from Simons Says Stamp.  I decided a shaker card would be lots of fun.  

It is hard to see in the picture, but the gift wrap on the paper is the same as what I lined the envelope with.  It adds more of the monochromatic look.  I found a piece of blue foil and cut the ribbon out of that.  Who doesn't like a gift with a big, shiny bow?

The "JOY" sentiment was cut five times and stacked up to give it more dimension.  I added Wink of Stella on top of the "JOY" to make it shine.  It is very difficult to photograph.  Lots of sequins were added to make it glisten and shine.

I am so glad you stopped by my blog today.  Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.  I love to hear from you!

If you have any questions, please contact me at: Claire.

Wishing you a lovely day!

Happy Stampin!
