Country Christmas

First thing this morning as I was reading my usual blogs, I saw the cutest post from Tracey McNeely for CASology #67. Tracey's card seen here inspired me to dig through the stamps and dies I have with me on vacation and try to come up with something "country". This week's Merry Monday #80 is to use a Christmas Carol to inspire our card. It didn't take long until I knew I had found the perfect sets...Lil' Inker Holy Jolly Dies, gingham and polka dots. You can't get more country than a gingham Christmas tree, can you?

 

I used two new sets..Jolly and Joyful Sentiments and the Jolly Word Die along with the previously released Stitched Stars Die Set, Stitched Mat Rectangles and Holly Jolly Dies to create my version of a warm country Christmas.

It is feeling a little like Christmas here in Montana...my husband and I chopped down several old trees and had a nice little bonfire last night...and our cabin is still standing! Can't get more country than that!

I am also linking this up to Simon Says Stamp Christmas challenge.

Thanks for your kind words about my photography...you know, occasionally the camera just doesn't want to work properly...or is it the photographer? Ha

YAYY! A country card you made in the country - love it! The color is amazing on this Cathy - all the red (that jolly just jumps off the page) and I love the accordion tree! The dots and gingham work perfectly together!

Adorable! Love that 3D tree! :)

What a fabulous country Christmas card. Your 3d tree is fantastic, and the polka dots and gingham are just perfect. Love how the red bling on your tree echos the paper.

Had to pop over after seeing your card on CASology. Such a gorgeous card...love everything about it, but especially the 3D tree!
