Merry Monday #133

Happy Monday friends!
Time for another Merry Monday Challenge.
This week Nina challenges us to create a rustic looking card using creams, tans & browns.


I immediately thought of this lovely Santa image by Stampin' Up!  I just LOVE that he fits perfectly in the Holiday Frames die by Simon Says Stamp.  A little sponging around the edges to add to the rustic feel of my card, a tilted panel and a twine bow to finish it off. 

Christmas will be here before you know it.  Make sure you check out the other DT members cards over at the Merry Monday challenge blog.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

  7. Another wonderful card, Kristie and using that fabulous SSS die! (Maybe we should be a tag team with that die LOL) Love how that Santa fits so well - looks like he was made for that die.

  9. This endearing, somewhat vintage image and the sponged edges are definitely a match made to be gracing a lovely Kristie creation! Your crisp, clean and simple design (the colors really lend a hint of 'earthiness") is the perfect way to showcase jolly old St. Nick!
