Merry Monday Week #45

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Lesley from over at Always Playing With Paper has another challenge for us this week to help us get those Christmas cards made. She gave us an easy sketch this week.



I originally had a button with a pearl on my card but after looking at it I decided to make my card more mail friendly and took the button off. I added the littlest snowflake from the Snow Swirled stamp set after I embossed it with Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder. My tree is also embossed. I added little white pearls to my tree and snowflake for interest. I like how flat these are and was so tempted to add ribbon but decided not too. I also made a 5 pack of these for the upcoming craft show season! :)

Hope you can stop by Lesley's blog to see what the other Merry Makers have created this week. 
Lots of inspiration! :)

Great card and I need to learn from you and take those buttons off and keep my cards more mail friendly.

Great thinking to reduce bulk on your cards this year! Postage is going out of control! I love the snow swirled set, and don't think I'll ever part with it! This is really a pretty card!!

That little snowflake with the pearl is perfect, Wendy! And easy mailing is a high priority for me! I think these cards will go fast at your craft sale!
