Merry Monday CASE

I've been busy in the stamp room working on some future design team cards, so I wanted a quick card that I could make and show to you today.  Merry Monday, and my friend, Kristie, to the rescue.

Stockings are my favorite part of Christmas.  There is so much goodness that can be filled in a stocking.  (Especially when your stocking is knit and can stretch with every gift that gets put inside it.)  ;)


Stampin' UP!'s Snow Festival DSP is retired now, but I still love it and will continue to use it until the pack is gone.  One of the things I dearly love about cardmaking is that the paper stretches so far.  I even used a scrap to punch the little jewelry tag.


I love the added detail of the little jewelry tag.  That is one retired product I might not ever get rid of.

I'm also linking up with the current "Anything Goes" with "Baker's Twine or Thread" at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  It's a small detail, but it adds the finishing touch to my card.


Another week, another Christmas card.  I'm pretty impressed with how easy the Merry Monday challenges are making it to create a card a week.  Thank you!

Creative Blessings,
Heather North

I like all the stockings hung off the flourish, it's such a sweet idea and gives the card motion. Great card! I agree on the jewelry tag-so small yet so often used!

You already know I LOVE this, Heather! I have a few of these squares left but have been stuck with the ones like the one you used on your card. Now I know what stamp to use in the banner part. Thank YOU!!! Off to make some more. :) Thank you for joining us at Merry Monday!

So funny . . . this one caught my eye from the tiny pic on the Merry Monday Gallery, and then I read the whole post and go to comment and I realize, hey . . . this is Heather from StampNation! No wonder I was drawn to this card in the pic . . . I'm always drawn to her crafty goodness. I just love this little card. That DSP is perfect, as is all the little touches (including the tiny tag w/twine). Love it.
