PTI Make it Monday #202

Hello everyone.

I am back with a card for the Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #202 challenge which is using border dies to anchor your card.

Well, I do not own any of Papertrey Ink's border dies but I thought I could get around that.

So, my card starts with a kraft base on which I stamped some everygreen boughs and wee hearts from the Love Lives Here Holiday set.

Yes, as you can see, this is a Christmas card. Oh, I can hear the groans already. I know we just had Christmas but it will be coming around again and you can never be far enough ahead with your Christmas cards. But I digress...

I used a My Favorite Things tag die which I cut some dark red paper from my stash and over that I layered the angel from Love Lives Here Holiday and I stamped her in Memento Peanut Brittle ink. Over that I layered the Rustic Wreath die cut from paler kraft card and stamped with Versamark and embossed in white. Over that I layered a harlequin border die and the word "holiday" from Wonderful words cut from some gold paper. Attached a piece of gold ribbon on top and two layers of button stacks dies cut from felt with a tiny tag cut from vellum with the sentiment. 

There is a whole lot of stuff going on here. Lots of layers but I do believe that was the whole point.  :) 

I chose to glue my borders down due to the nature of the word holiday. I could not have it hanging loose and flapping around. Otherwise, I think I would have done as Melissa die and leave them loose.

Thanks a lot for stopping by. Hope you have a wonderful day. Cheers.
