Merry Monday #99

Hi folks! I carved out some time for another Merry Monday post today.  This week is Merry Monday Challenge #99.

99

I started by die cutting the PTI tree from ivory cardstock and stamping it with sheet music stamp from Flourishes

I used Spellbinders dies for the brown lacey ovals mat and the gold oval inside.  This is from the Shimmers pad from DCWV and it’s a subtle shimmery gold…really pretty!  I tied some rustic twine around the tree and added a button and some greenery I created with a Martha Stewart punch.  A piece of striped twill ribbon and matting on a gingham print from the Authentique Wonder paper pad finishes it off. 

One more Christmas card done!  I might have a handful by December, lol!  Thanks for stopping by! 

Don’t miss another post tomorrow…and surprises on the way starting Saturday-that’s all I can say!

I always love your Christmas cards. They're full of warmth and good cheer. This one has a bit of that old fashioned traditional Christmas feel to it. You'll be done with them in no time and wanting to do more. I've made six so far this year. Guess I need to pick up the pace.
