Merry Monday #43

Christmas is getting closer :).  We picked up the cutest little Christmas tree from Michaels this weekend, one of those pre-decotated ones they have for floral displays. It was 50% off and so we could not resist, my husband and I are treating ourselves to a trip over the holidays so we are not decorating the house like we normally would.
We have a new Merry Monday Challenge this week. I have to admit it took me a couple of tries with this card to get what I wanted. I am very happy with the finished card.
I cut the little trees out of my DP scraps and inked the edges. I added some little gold pearls to the tips for added embelishment The strip behind is embossed and added a little twine.
Supplies: Cream and burgundy cardstock, Designer Paper –Fancy Pants, Verve-Holiday Phrases, embossing folder, gold twine and pearls.

Head over to Always Playing with Paper to see what Lesley and the Design Team members have created, we would love for you to play along with us for Merry Monday.



  1. Love those trees! Exciting that you are going on a trip for Christmas! Have fun!

  2. Such a beautiful card...soft subtle colors and I love the well as your already-decorated one! Fabulous!

  3. This is so pretty!!! I like this sketch and I think it would make great 'flat' cards as that is what I need to get making!! I love the embossing!!

  4. Awwww - Sis, your tree is PERFECT! I have a tree just that size but its a real one and just the VERY TOP of a biiiiig tall fir. yours has an advantage of not shedding or shedding sap.

    Hope your trip is wonderful. You both work hard and deserve to pamper yourselves a bit.

    TERRIFIC card, I'm hoping to do one with you when an opportunity opens up.


  5. Love the little trees. Sounds like you have a fun trip planned.

  6. I have been admiring these little trees all week, Nina! So cute. That embossing folder is really hard to find. It's listed as Kars Snowflake or Kars Snowflake Spots by Cuttlebug. I found it on Ebay, but that store is out of it now.

  7. I thought you used a die for these trees! LOVE them and the vintage feel to your papers Nina!

  8. Oh wow, Nina! This is such a great card! Love the mix of patterns, especially on your trees, and the wonderful texture too! Very, very pretty!

  9. Oh, Nina! Those little trees are adorable, lined up in a row like that. (and your real little tree is also sweet!)

  10. Love you take on the sketch Nina, those little trees are adorable in the different designer papers.
