Merry Christmas Inspiration with Rhonda

Happy Monday Cheery Lynn Designs friends!  It's Rhonda here to host the blog for you today.

My card for today combined a few new dies as a feature from our October release for you.  I used the very pretty Merry Christmas Holly Sentiment  and some vines from the together to create the design here.


I cut the Merry Christmas sentiment first from some dark green papers, then once again from another pattern paper with mixed coloring.  I trimmed around the oval, then used it as a frame on top.  A little touch of inks gold gives a bit of shimmer.

I wanted to add a bit more to the design, so I cut one of the Lattice Hearts and Vines as below:


I trimmed small pieces and glued them from behind:

A layer of tulle and cheesecloth is on top of the paper, so I stitched my frame down in a few places. The sentiment was adhered with a touch of Glossy Accents from the back.


A few golden bells and holly leaves from our Mega Holly Flourish were the finishing touch, along with some little bits of red bling.  Can you believe we are only about two months away from Christmas!?
