Merry Monday #204 - Woodgrain, Kraft, & White

Hello friends.  The challenge over at Merry Monday this week is to use woodgrain, kraft, & white in your Christmas card. 


I chose to work with PTI's Petite Places: Nativity stamp set and Nativity Scene It dies.  My scalloped and stitched card base is from one of the dies in PTI's Don't Forget to Write kit, and I added a square layer that I stamped with SU!'s Hardwood background stamp in kraft ink.  When I first put this card together, I used white for the palm tree layer, but it just didn't look right, so cut it again in a darker brown for some contrast.  I know dark brown wasn't in the challenge description, but hopefully there's enough of the woodgrain, kraft, & white in the rest of the card!  You can't see it in the photo, but the star is really sparkly from using my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen on it. 


There's still time to play along with this challenge, and you can get all the info to play along and see all the DT's inspiration, right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!  :0)

  5. This is wonderful in kraft and white. Such a classic scene. Oh, and the numbers on my last balloon card were created with the Numbers Impression Plate from PTI.

  7. The Holy City looks so pretty the way that you've done it here Marcia...it reminds me of one of those puzzle boxes done in different types of wood! :)

  8. Marcia, I saw this in the Merry Monday link up and had to come get a closer look! It's absolutely gorgeous! I have some of the other PTI scene dies, but not the Bethlehem ones. I think I may need to invest in them for my cards this Christmas!
