'Tis The Season To Be Jolly ~ Make It Monday #139

Since I need to get started on some Christmas cards, I decided to try Dawn's technique again using border stamps to create a frame. To view Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday #139 video showcasing Stamped Square Frames, click here.

Starting with a white card base, I then stamped Boutique Borders: Birthday four times using Simply Chartreuse ink on a smaller piece of white cardstock and adhered it to a piece of Simply Chartreuse which I popped up on dimensionals. The red sequins are placed at the four corners where the borders intersect. Hopefully, I balanced my card by adding a bow of red/white twine just above my stamped sentiment, 'tis the season to be jolly.

Each "ho ho ho" was die cut twice using white cardstock and stamping one of the Half and Half patterns using SU Real Red ink. Each letter was backed by another die-cut in SU Real Red cardstock. 

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)
Cardstock: White, Simply Chartreuse and SU Real Red
Ink: Simply Chartreuse and SU Real Red
Stamps: Boutique Borders: Birthday, Communique Curves and Half & Half
Dies: Block Alphabet
Other: Twinery Twine, sequins (Michaels) and SU Dimensionals

Super take on the MIM technique. Those 'hohoho's' made me smile.
