Merry Monday #19

Hello Friends - Happy Friday!  Last week I just couldn't seem to get my Merry On with all that I had going on - and this week has been kind of crazy too, but I was able to finally find a little time to play with this great sketch from Lesley at Always Playing with Paper - which is the site for the weekly Merry Monday challenges.  This card is based on the Merry Monday #19 Challenge. 

As you can see, I interpreted the sketch just a wee bit to accomodate an idea I have been wanting to try since receiving my Lable Framelit dies.  If you look closely you will see what looks like a shadow.  What that is is a window cut-out - you can see it a little better in the pictures below and of the inside.  Popped the trees up with dimension dots so that even when it's closed there is some dimension to the card.  I dug up some fun paper from a couple seasons ago to use for this card while I am so very eagerly awaiting my Stampin Up! preorder that is supposed to be delivered sometime today (whoo hoo!).  I pre-ordered some great Christmas stuff - so be watching for a sample of it next week when I participate in the next Merry Monday challenge.  Thanks so much for stopping by - I hope you saw something that inspired you!  Have a most wonderful weekend won't you?!  Hugs!


Supplies (all from Stampin UP!): Cardstock - Garden Green and Whisper White.  Stamps - Polar Party (trees) and Tiny Tags.  DSP - Candy Cane (retired 2010). Ribbon - 1/4" grosgrain in real red.  I used the jewelry tag punch for the little sentiment tags.  I colored the image with Copic markers.  I used three of the sizes in the Lables Collection Framelit dies for the inside.
