Make It Monday



by Dawn McVey
I think I spent more time trying to get a photo than I did making the card.
Good Monday morning to you!
Edited to say I lied! The stitched square is from Lil Inkers Designs(I use them on almost every card so I sometimes forget to say that.)
Everything I used on this card is from Papertrey Ink. For the frame I used Postmarks Stamp Set. I left off two lines on each end and crossed them in the corner.  When I stamped the trees I picked up the stamp just a bit and re-stamped it for a bit of a shadow.  

I love reading all your sweet comments ! I thank you for taking the time to leave them, when you stop by to take a look.

Stamps: Winter Hills , Postmarks Stamp Set and Think Big Favorites #20 
Paper: Rustic White 
Everything is from Papertrey Ink

  9. I have just loved every single one of the beautiful cards you've made using 'Winter Hills'! There's a special synergy between those stamps and you. And your striped frame came out perfectly; love those crazy 'X' corners. I've always wanted to use that stamp at Christmas time, and you've given me an 'in'.

  12. Oh, this card definitely has a major 'WOW' factor!
    Love the techniques you used for the trees ( a little off set)
    and your stitched dies form Lil Inkers Designs, where would you be without those! :-)
    And the square stamped postage frame is gorgeous.
    Your card is well balanced, love the subtle use of colors here and there.
    And the sentiment is just perfect!
    This will definitely be a Christmas card to be put in sight for everyone to see!!
    Our home is almost entirely white on the insided so I think I'll give this a try myself!
    And I would keep the card myself so I can put this card as an eyecatcher on our piano, ha, ha.
    It's just too gorgeous to be send to someone!
    Bye,

I love the shadows you created with the trees, the snow in the sky, the red border, the glittery rooftops....everything! And those houses always make me think of home (Virginia)...I think I need this set now. (P.S. How fun to think we each spent last Saturday at the baptism of a loved one. A great way to spend a day I think.)
