Modern Merry

Happy Thursday. I hope your week has been a good one. It is still very cold here. The snow we got last week is slowly melting though.
Amy Jaz Designs is the guest designer at The Lilypad for the month of December. This is her newest kit The Modern Merry Paper Pack she has for sale there.

Here is a card I made with the kit.

I didn't have time to use my November Year Of Flowers set last month so I used it on this card.
I also used this weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch for the layout but I flipped it.

I started by stamping the mum twice then colored it with the Pure Poppy Copic Trio. I cut out the center of the flower then attached it to the middle of the first one to give it some dimension then I added it to the circle with foam tape. After that I colored the leaves and added them with foam tape too. When I was done with that I stamped the sentiment from Fillable Frames #2. Next I added some patterned paper from the kit and embossed the New Leaf background with the Linen impression plate. Finally I finished it off with Spring Rain Satin ribbon, Dew Drops, Machine Stitching and a Pure Poppy Button.
Amy has also designed a matching elements kit

And a matching Paper Flags Kit.

As you have seen by looking at my card this kit is not just for Christmas. It would also be great to use if you are documenting your December.
I will be back soon with another project using these kits. In the meantime. I hope the rest of your week is a great one and as always thanks for stopping by.
