Merry Monday 79

Happy Monday, peeps!  Lesley has a lovely inspiration  for all you Merry Monday stampers:



I just loved those little blue iced snowflake cookies, so I pulled out a retired SU set called Snow Flurries, and went to work:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Merry Monday 79 Snowflake Christmas Tree

I stamped an assortment of snowflakes in Encore Silver ink, then punched them out with a 1/2” circle punch.  The images actually fit inside a 3/4” punch, but I found they were too big to make my tree, so I went down to a smaller size.  I added some Marina Mist and Silver Glimmer circles as well:

I added a glimmer star and trunk, and my little snowy tree was done.  To finish it off, I added a sentiment stamped in silver as well.  This was a really fun card to make!  Here’s the inside:

Both sentiments are from Waltzingmouse’s Compliments of the Season.  Enjoy!
