Another Christmas Card

I love making Christmas cards all year long and am glad there are challenges to inspire me on.  My card today is for Merry Monday #93 - use an ornament(s) on your Christmas card and for Christmas Cards All Year Round - only use Blue & White.

Christmas Cards All Year Round

ETA:  My card was a top pick at Christmas Cards All Year Round
Christmas Cards All Year Round
I used Image Plus White CS and SU Marina Mist CS.  The ornament is an Inkadinkado "Brenda Walton" stamp.  I stamped it in Versamark ink on Marina Mist CS and used white embossing powder (it has a yellowish tint in the photo but is white IRL). I fussy cut it out and mounted it to a panel embossed with the SU Snowburst EF.  I used a Spellbinder's Fancy Tag die for the sentiment, which is from Verve's Peace On Earth (correction).  The scalloped border is made with MFT Simply Scallops Medium Border die. That's it for my card.

Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
