Scalloped Christmas Thanks

Happy Monday! I have a really quick and easy card to share with you this morning. This will go into my stash of thank you notes for my family to use after Christmas.

Here are the challenges I incorporated into this card:
  • EtsyInspired: #114, to be inspired by the wares of the Happy Day Designs Etsy store. I was inspired by this beautiful bracelet.
  • Paper Sundaes: #44, Pick Your Own Sundae Toppings! Choose at least two of these toppings: punches, ribbon, embossing, or the color blue. I chose to do some heat embossing on my {ippity} flower image and used some wonderful punches.
  • Caardvarks: Holiday Die Cuts
Thanks so much for checking out what made me happy today!

Card Recipe:
Stamps: {ippity} Now & Always, SU Tiny Tags
Paper: MFP natural vanilla bean fleck CS, SU basic black CS, Basic Grey Jovial DP, October Afternoon Very Merry DP
Ink: Versamark
Accessories: MFT Jumbo Scallop Dienamics, SU 2-3/8" scallop circle punch, SU 1.75" circle punch, SU jewelry tag punch, black EP, dimensionals, baker's twine

Loving this, Emily :) Great poinsettia DP and the focal circle is just like the IP. Great card.

Spot on with your inspiration! Wonderful thank you notes and love the dp. So glad there are still people out there sending out thank you notes and teaching their children the same.

Love the red and black together. what a striking combination!

I like this combination of designer papers, Emily. It doesn't scream "holiday", and so could be used at other times of the year. The large circle really draws your eye in, and I can't believe how well that dp matches the etsy inspiration pic!

Pretty card Emily! So elegant and class looking!

Emily, you made a very classy looking card! I find it so hard to find a red that is just the color & pattern not too large. You really did find a jewel!

Great work!
Hugs, Pat
