Merry Monday #98


Hi friends.  Time for this week's Merry Monday challenge.  This week we want you to add some Country charm to your Christmas card by adding stitching and buttons.


If you visit my blog often you know I love these stitched dies from Lil' Inker Designs.  They add such a great detail.  I am not that good with my sewing machine, especially stitching a straight line.  :)  To keep my card flat for mailing I used the set Stitched Stockings by My Favorite Things to stamp the stocking and buttons.  I added some glossy accents over them to make them look more like real buttons.  The background piece also has some stitching details, I used the set Quilt Prints from Wplus9.

I hope you will join us for this week's Merry Monday challenge.  Make sure you visit the Merry Monday blog to see the rest of the beautiful cards from the Design Team members.
