Merry Monday #37

Well, here I am with another Merry Monday challenge card:)  It’s not actually Monday, it’s Friday, so that means I’m behind again!  This card is for M M #37.  First I’ll show you the sketch for this week:

I made two cards, I just had to;)  Here’s the first one, you can click on either card to make them larger:

This is an awesome, pre-colored digital image from Fred She Said!  I’ve used this image set a number of times, it’s called Christmas Poinsettia Lantern. The set is nice and big and includes the script paper, another lantern with red flowers, sentiments, B& W images, and several different formats!

I used my Stampin’ Up! Petals a Plenty embossing folder, also my Top Note die.  The ribbon is also SU, it’s Always Artichoke seam binding.  The cardstock I used is all Black and White.

Now for my second card:

If you’re thinking, wow, another pre-colored, Fred She Said digital image, you would be right! 🙂 lol  I do love my Fred She Said images! 🙂  This image is called Emma The Hugger – Snowman Edition.  This is one of Tracey’s “older” images, I still love it!  I actually use it quite often:) !  This set includes a B&W version, and a decoupage sheet (images that you cut out and layer).

I used another Stampin’ Up! embossing folder, but this one is retired:(  Stampin’ Up! cardstock, White, Garden Green, Real Red, and a retired Brilliant Blue. I am embarrassed to say I forget which FSS set I pulled the sentiment from:(  It’s either this set or the Lantern set.

For both cards I used my Spellbinders Oval dies.  On this card I used a snowflake punch from Martha Stewart.

I am up WAY too late!  Thanks for stopping by:)  I’ll be back very soon with some more cards, hope to see you then! 🙂
