Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #230

Merry Monday and welcome to a new Merry Monday Challenge, this week Marcia is our hostess this week and her challenge is to Make a Christmas card with the word Noel and/or a Scandinavian feel to it.

I managed to accomplish both, I have a love for Pion Designer paper which are made in Sweden. I love the beautiful designs. I purchased a few new Penny Black stamps set around Christmas that have some wonderful sentiments.

I used stitched die cuts to outline this stunning ornament with a choosy cabin. I added a number of random sentiments. I finished by using some Wink of Stella to add a little shimmer to the snow.

Supplies: Cream and brown card stock, Designer Paper - Pion, Penny Black - Holiday Snippets.

The Merry Monday Design team had som wonderful cards to share, stop by the challenge blog to take a look.

Thanks for visiting,


  1. What a great idea adding the sentiment throughout the background and a cute scenery on your ornament!

  2. So soft and pretty, Nina. Love this. Have a great week.

  3. Lovely, lovely card Nina, and I will definitely be checking out the DSP...SOOOO pretty! Love how you added the different sentiments too, and your ornament with the cozy little scene is FABULOUS! Hope you're having a wonderful week!! :0)

  4. Just love your papers with the random stamped sentiments, Nina!!

  5. What a lovely scene on this lovely paper! the added sentiments and glitter are perfect to complete!

  6. Lovely Card Nina, and I am the same about good DP. I actually thought about using a DP the other day for a stamping challenge but was unsure if it would be acceptable, so many people have gone over to almost total stamping and colorning.

  7. So pretty! Love that design paper and how you added all the little sentiments!!
