Only you could take an already amazing card and make it even better!! Love the gingham tree! It just screams "CHRISTMAS!!" Thanks for sharing!


OMG! I can't tell you how much I love these cards! You never cease to amaze me, Melissa! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

I was WONDERING why I loved that card so's a fab remake of the FIRST card that I loved so much! But that gingham put me straight over the edge! I have to get that Christmas tree die one day! You make magic happen with it!

I often ask myself how you are able to make A perfect match of papers, stamps, stamps, embelliShemnTs and design. This is GORGEOUS!

What a beautiful card, Melis! I love the homespun look of it. And, of course the one you copied from is gorgeous, too!

Melisa Hunter

These are just gorgeous!


I have to say that over all these years, Melissa, you remain one of my favorite Christmas card artists. I still have two of yours that I bought when I first found you -- I just like looking at them. These are amazing!

The original card is pretty and the remake is awesome! All the details are so nice, washi tape, gingham, texture, ribbons, buttons,etc.


These are both so pretty Melissa. I think the PTI heart border is one of my very favorites! I really like to use it with felt ;)


Hello sweet Melissa!
Just swinging by to say and see what you have been making.
Always so happy to see your creations!

You make it hard to choose a favorite. I love the design of both cards with the buttons on the trees and both color schemes are wonderful.


Two fantastic cards! Loved seeing both the pastel vs the homespun. Great details on each. :)
