Merry Monday 181

The challenge at Merry Monday 181 is to use blue and white with texture. 

 

My dear blogging friend Greta sent me these Simon Says Stamp Merry Christmas die cuts (thanks so much!).  I have been pondering how I was going to use them, and upon seeing the Merry Monday challenge, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

I stamped the tree scene in versamark and heat embossed with white powder. This image from the Stampin Up set Happy Scenes is the perfect size for this die cut frame.  I added the little twine and bow to finish the card off.  I love the simple and clean lines.

I even had to make a second one in red I liked the design so much.
Thanks for stopping by!
