NOEL-Merry Monday #148

March 3, 2015

Back again to play along with the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge.  This week's theme by Deanne is Red and Green!  Traditional Christmas is always fun to create. 




I am on a mission to use papers that I have been hoarding!  I have SO MUCH stuff that it is starting to get overwhelming.  I found this DSP in the Adventure Series Pack from Stampin' Up! and decided it was a perfect rustic background for my wreath!



The retired Wonderous Wreath Stamp Set and Dies are such a great set and I used the bow maker to make a festive bow.  I love the way it pops off the paper. 


The "Noel" was cut five times with my die and then adhered together to make it stand out on the woodgrain paper.  It has such a cozy feeling.  Makes you want to sit by the fireplace and read.

I hope you enjoyed my card today.  Please leave a comment if you have a chance.  I always love to hear from you!

Contact me at: Claire if you have any questions!

Until next time!

Happy Stampin!
Claire


Wonderous Wreath and the Noel die are retired Stampin' Up! products.
