Merry Monday #74

Good morning it is time for a new  Merry Monday Challenge, Lesley has posted another beautiful image for this weeks challenge inspiration. The challenge is the use the colours green and white with woodgrain.

 

In my stash I have this wonderful 6 x 6 paper pad and I found a scrap of wood grain paper that was just big enough for this little tree. I started my card by using my die cut to punch out a tree in the top layer of white cardstock, which I backed with a layer of green cardstock.
 
I then used that same die to cut out a tree from DP, I added some foam tape to the back to pop it up. I heat embossed the sentiment using green ink and clear embossing powder then finished with some red gems.
 
 
Supplies: White and green cardstock, Designer Paper-Fancy Pants Designs, Verve-Bright Spirits and Winter Fun, Recollections gems.

Stop by Always Playing with Paper to see what the Merry Makers have created for this week. We would love for you to play along with us for Merry Monday this week.

Cheers,
Nina

  7. Hi Nina,

    This is fabulous - truly, THIS card is so simple and effective. I love all the white space, this card is modern and traditional all at the same time. This is a card for someone who has anything other than the usual green Christmas tree ;)
