Merry Monday #55

Up for a game of Tic Tac Toe?  Come play with us at Merry Monday this week.  Create a Christmas card with your choice of elements, just pick three in a row!  I went with the top row, Animal, Designer Paper, and Ribbon.   Don’t want my Santa to confuse anyone!

My card is based on the great sketch this week at Deconstructed Sketch.   Love all the layers!  Due to the size of my stamped image, I went with a 6×6 card.

I added a little shimmer to my stamped panel…but it is not showing up well in the photo.  I stamped my main image.  Applied a mask for my moon and then sponged on Outdoor Denim ink.  I then added a little Smooch spray for some shimmer. My decorative shapes and layers were cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy Collection.

I layered up the inside to coordinate with the front.
