Merry Monday #53

Are you playing along at Merry Monday? At Merry Monday, we have a weekly card challenge with Christmas themed cards.  By creating one Christmas card a week, we are building up our Christmas card stash ahead of the Christmas season.  We would love to see your creations and you will love having your Christmas cards already made when the holiday rush hits!  Here is the sketch for this week-

I was able to make a trip by Archiver’s last week…no small feat, since Archiver’s is a six hour round trip drive!  I picked up this yummy paper pack by Little Yellow Bicycle.  Winterings is new to me, not sure if it is a new release or not.  It features blues, browns and grey tones.  A perfect addition to my Christmas paper stash.  The decorative shapes on my card were cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.

  1. Pretty card, Allisa! Love the die cut reindeer image and those yummy papers! Sounds like you did good at Archiver's last week!
    Have a wonderful week! 🙂

  2. Allisa, I am so jealous that you will have so many cards done at Christmas time!!! If I start now, I think I can do two a week and catch up…hmmmm. You must reveal where you found that shape behind your reindeer! I cannot find it anywhere! Pretty please! 😉

  3. Santa definitely needs his reindeer and this is a very attractive one – I love the colour combo you've used and that plaid paper is gorgeous – thanks for entering my CHNC challenge 115 – you could also enter this into my CHNC challenge extra for March – I'd love to see it there too. X

  4. My decorative shape is located on the Art Philosophy cartridge. I have tweaked the dimensions in Design Studio or you could do the same in Cricut Craft Room.
