Merry Monday Challenge

The challenge this week at the Merry Monday challenge is to use Red, Green, Kraft with a choice of ribbon, twine or burlap.  I didn't add ribbon, twine or burlap as the 1st card I made didn't really suit any further embellishments.

Here is my card:


Card stock is from my stash and the embossing folder is petal a plenty from Stampin Up.  The poinsettia die is from Poppy Stamps and I added a bit of bling to the centre of the flower. I do not know the manufacturer of the sentiment which was heat embossed.  I really like this card.  

Here is the 2nd card I made for this challenge:


Card stock is from my stash.  The design paper is by Recollections 6 x 6 paper pad - Sugar plums.  The sentiment is part of the design paper and I also fussy cut the houses and tree.  The gingerbread embellishment is from my stash.  I also added a gold punched star.  The gold ribbon is also from my stash.  I wasn't too happy with this card initially, but now I think it's kind of cute!

I am also entering this card in the One Crazy Stamper blog - their theme for September is Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by!

It was so nice to see you today at Pointers! I have gone through a lot of your posts....you do wonderful cards! Love the card you have posted here with the pointsettia. The little gingerbread card is super cute. I like how you stamped the sentiment in the white to make it pop on the green cardstock.
