Merry Monday #272 - Glasses

Merry Monday everyone - time for Leanne's challenge #272 to uses glasses on your Christmas card - how fun!! And doesn't her inspiration photo look festive? My holiday table definitely doesn't look like that!

I have a bunch of glass themed crafty stuff around the house, but I found the perfect holiday wine glasses in the Silhouette store! Don't they just make you smile?


Supplies: Paper - Poptone Black Licorice, DCWV Ms Sparkle green A2 card, 
Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Lawn Fawn Bokeh in the Snow & Peace Joy Love 6x6 pads
Stamp - Hero Arts CL797 Under the Mistletoe (retired at Hero Arts but I spotted at Frantic Stamper)
Dies - My Favorite Things Blueprints 13; Hero Arts DI337 Nesting Ovals Infinity Dies
Silhouette Design ID# 234007 Christmas Wine Glasses - Rudolph & Frosty by Sarah Bailey
Other - Copic Markers, 3M glitter washi, craft googly eyes, foam tape, Hero Arts black pearls

I cut all the pieces using white cardstock, then colored with Copics - saves moving pieces to different pages in the Silhouette and cutting on colored cardstock. Instead of the eyes that cut with the file, I used googly eyes on the reindeer and pearls on the snowman. I used the file's smile on both but added small pearls to the snowman's.

Made three cards this week - I was on a roll.... and I see that JoAnn, one of the other Design Team members, used the Santa & Elf file too. Great minds think alike, right? Just love her card!! I had paired the Elf and Santa, just like she did, but it's fun to see how different the cards look with a few changes!

Supplies: Paper - Poptone Black Licorice, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Authentique Joyous 6x6 pad
