Monochromatic Christmas Card

Hi Scrapyland Bloggers.   
It's the middle the month and that means it's time for a new Scrapyland Challenge ( The Scrapyland Challenge #30 is "Monochromatic" using any brand of dies that Scrapyland on-line store sells.  This challenge ends on December 1st and the winner, chosen by the Designers, will receive a $15 gift certificate to Scrapyland ( on-line store. 

I was challenged to make a monochromatic colored card but actually had fun with this one using gold, brown and black colors. 

I love the new Creative Expression-Sue Wilson Design Festive Collections for this year that Scrapyland store sells.  This is the  Sue Wilson's  Peace On Earth and was cut with black paper and  embossed with Ranger Melt Art Copper embossing powder. 

The copper frame around the Sue Wilson's Wise Men Mini Striplet was also done the same way.  This die set has two dies in it for the background and the frame.  The background paper behind the wise men is an antique gold glitter paper. 

I cut out the Cherry Lynn Design Horizontal Stacker Frame.  I love all of the Cherry Lynn stacker frames since the frames coordinate well with many Cherry Lynn dies.  I had to cut it down the center of this frame to fit around the Wise Men Striplet.  I used foam pads behind the frame.

The embossing folder is from Creative Expression-Sue Wilson Design Lattice Snowflake.  I am in love with this embossing folder and have been using it on many of my Christmas cards. 

I love this gold glitter bow from Really Reasonable  I used the Zutter Bow-It-All V2 bow maker from Really Reasonable Ribbon on-line store to create this bow.  I used my angel mold to make this beautiful praying angel and colored the angel with gold chalk powder to give it an antique vintage look.

I hope my Christmas card inspire you to get started on your holiday cards and projects this Christmas season.  Start right away by ordering your beautiful dies from Scrapyland one-line store  to make your gorgeous cards and projects.

Wow! GORGEOUS card - so rich and regal, Nancy! I love every details - all the added textures, shine, EP, glittery goodness on your masterpiece. It's very warm and loving. The angel is the perfect addition to your clever bow. Did you make two separate bows and then tie them together in the Zutter? Or did you make all the sizes at one time? hugs, de

This is one bow and not two separate bows. Yep! The Zutter Bow Maker is worth having do easily make one of these bows. Also, I learned a lot by viewing some tutorials on how to make a variety of bows using the Zutter Bow Maker. Any problem, let me know cause I can make a tutorial for you but seeing the tutorials on U-Tube by Bonnie Garby will explain most of this.
