Merry Monday Challenge #6


Hello!  I finished the Merry Monday challenge today but haven't had time to post until now.  Today I once again played with a stamp set I haven't used in a long time, Trim the Tree.

I think the sketch works perfectly for this stamp set.  I bought the DSP at Archiver's and added it to a crumb cake background.  I stamped the tree in some forest foliage ink and embossed the tree with the swirls stamp in gold embossing powder.  My greeting is punched from Petite Pairs and matted with gold paper.  I'm loving this challenge:  it's Christmas once a week in my stamp room!  I'm trying to do 4 of the same each week, and I'm trying for postal friendly cards.  So far, so good.  Just wish I hadn't missed the first week.  Maybe I should go back and do it anyway.  It's a thought!


  1. Super pretty Christmas card, Carol! Love your image & the papers!
    I too missed the first week and went back and did the challenge just so I would have all the cards made! :)

  2. I love the papers you have used, Carol. And the gold embossing finishes of the tree perfectly!
