Merry Trees CAS Card - The Stamp Market

 It's time for another CAS design, Friends! The hardest type of cardmaking for me to case for sure...But one that is masculine too? Now THAT is hard. 

Today's card was a challenge, but I think it encapsulates both of these tricky categories quite well...And can I brag for a second? I actually really, REALLY love the end result :)
But I'd love to know, what do you think? It's an easy one to make in bundles - just a few stamped trees, and a die-cut sentiment using some of the new pretties from TSM, like the the Merry die - which is such a show-stopper and big favorite for me. I really ought to make a pile of cards using this beauty. It's just too good. 

For the stamped trees, I used some of the tiny motifs in the Happy + Merry stamp set. This type of set is so versatile. All the bitty images can be mixed and matched, in infinite ways. Here, I simply stamped a geometric pattern, in some of my favorite hues.

At the bottom, I used a part of the sentiment that's in the set to finish off my greeting.

And now I can hardly wait to get back to my crafty desk and whip up something else with these cuties! 
I am STILL waiting for my stamping cardstock to arrive...In the meantime, crushing on all the ways I'll use it when it gets here! Any favorite supplies that you've been crushing on lately? I'm always on the lookout for a new bit to drool over!
