Welcome back to the bi-weekly Make My Monday challenge # 215. Our host for this time, Caz, chose Oh Christmas Tree or Christmas Forest for the theme. When you finish here, I hope you will visit the challenge site to see the projects created by the rest of the design team. We’d love to see your interpretations of our theme in our gallery!

Here are my cards:

I used two sheets of the One Horse Open Sleigh 6 x 6 inch DSP (designer series paper) after I found a video tutorial from Rachel Tessman of stamp your art out with Rachel. I watched the whole video first and absolutely fell in love with her cards!! Once I started, I just kept going and created 10 of the 16 cards I need for friends at work in one night. This card makes such an impact, and is just stamping, trimming, and scoring. My top card base is Real Red as is the ribbon and ink. The bottom card base is Mossy Meadow and ink. I used Pebbled Path jute twine, which is one of the colors in the DSP. The sentiments come from the Brightest Glow stamp set.

Rachel’s video is so easy to follow. I am so thankful that she put the measurements and supplies in a PDF. The link to her blog post is here, and you can find the PDF link on her blog.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Have a Peachy Day!
