Merry!

merrymaureenplut
Good morning everyone!  Well, it doesn’t get much simpler than “Merry” this morning.  You don’t need the word “Christmas” to convey the heartfelt Merry Christmas in this card (even though I love “Christmas”).  Oh, my CAS wannabe heart was swooning while making this.  I was inspired by the Festive Friday Challenge going on right now.  My bestie, Lynn, is their Guest Designer this time and she’s one of my CAS muses.  So I just HAD to go with that energy.
Wreath Element
I created my wreath using the Clearly Besotted Delightful Doilies stamp set and matching dies.  I can’t tell you how happy I was to still be on the DT when these came to me!  Y’all know I love a good doily!  Stamped, die cut, sticker, paper, foil, you name it, I love them all!  I embossed each doily image in white to create a subtle, but shiny texture to my card…here’s a close up…

Y’all also know that my love for doilies is right up there with my love for jingle bells.  I may have to give this one to myself!  If YOU get, you are very “card worthy!”  LOL  Have a great day and thanks so much for visiting :)

Oh, the doilies are gorgeous! I love the embossing, it's simple, but so pretty. And aren't you glad it's Jingle Bell season again?! You're so kind to play with us so often, my friend!
