Merry and Bright...

Disclaimer: This card was hard to photograph, so I am hoping you can see the fun detail.  This Merry and Bright die from Lil Inkers is SO fun!  Instead of cutting out the square, it cuts out a window with the words attached.  


First, I cut a layer in vellum, then I die cut in the center of this card front using the GORGEOUS Ombre Strips Paper Pad.  LOVE!  I atg'd the vellum behind the striped cardstock after clipping off the Merry and bright out of the stitched box.  That way only the vellum layer would show up.  


I added foam tape on the back to give the dimension and let the vellum sentiment "float" in the center.  Such a fun and easy, CAS card!


Hope your weekend is off to a good start!  We are headed to B's first basketball game.  It's so cute when they are little and have no idea.  We call it herd ball.  ha!  

Thanks for coming by today!  Have a great weekend!
