Alternate Monday Stampin’ Up! Merry Christmas To All

Hi Stampers, It’s Alternate Monday day.  That means I am sharing a card taken from the blog hop that I participate in each Thursday. I am taking either the sketch or color challenge and making a second card that is close to or similar to the posted card from the hop.  I want to inspire you to get different looks for your card by mixing it up a bit by color and design.  Today I used the same layout, with a twist and changed the colors to give the card an “Alternate” look.

    So pretty Kristi! The touch of sparkle with that beautiful designer paper creates the perfect holiday card! 🙂

  2. Julie Johnston says:

    This is lovely too, Kristi, but I think I lean toward the one with the house. It is just so cozy, and I tend toward cozy instead of glitzy. I love how you do this every week.

  3. Susan K says:

    While I like cozy, I’m attracted even more to the glimmer of this one! That copper embossing is beautiful. Great way to use that big sentiment. I love your Alt Monday series. TFS.
