Merry Monday 126

Hi Crafty Friends, I am once again playing in the Merry Monday Challenge and a few others. I am really growing my card stash. Maybe I'll count how many I've made soon. I tried another clean and simple card because let's face it, they are easier to mail!

Since the MM challenge is to focus on the sentiment I pulled out my never been used Memory Box "Merry" die. I knew I wanted to use that die then I searched for a current sketch that would work with it and found this one from Techno Stampers. I tried dry embossing the white background but it made the card to busy so I stayed with a plain white CS. I just "heart" this BG snowman paper so much!
I added a few stars and called it done. (there is one on the patterned paper too but it blends in).
Oh, I layered 2 cuts of the word Merry on top of one another with Ranger Matte Medium! Ridiculously tiny die to try that with!

So that's it for this week. I hope to make a few Birthday cards this week too. I have 4 birthdays in the next 6 days.
