Merry Christmas 22

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, November 21, 2017 @ 8:27 AM | , ,


Hi there! Today I have a couple of Christmas projects to share. I'm joining along with the PTI Make It Monday challenge where the challenge is to create a Photo Christmas ornament. I made an ornament featuring a photo of Meredith and Connor that was taken 16 years ago using the PTI Shaker Shape: Ornament die:
 I embellished it with a few bottle brush trees from the PTI Joyful Christmas stamp set:
Up next is a Clean and Layered style Christmas card featuring a trio of my favorite PTI Vintage Ornaments (which I've had for years but recently ordered the dies! So happy that they were still available for purchase!):
I combined the ornaments with pretty foliage from the PTI Spruce and Sprigs stamp set:
For color and theme (retro) inspiration, I'm joining along with the card Concept challenge:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Be Sweet ;)

Two gorgeous projects. It's lovely to see a photo scrapped OTP for the festive season. The ornaments are so pretty and stylish embellished with silver. The buttons and bow make the perfect finishing touches.
