Merry Monday on a Friday

On the blog "Always Playing with Paper" they have a weekly challenge called "Merry Monday" and the idea behind it is to get a head start on your Christmas cards...

I liked the simplicity of this weeks design so I dug out the box of Christmas supplies and created this little card in about 15 minutes.

When I say little I mean it!  The dimensions of this card are 2 1/2" by 5".  Once again I got to play with my new Close to My Heart Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge cutting out the metallic card stock, white circles and the red circle frames. 

The metallic paper is from my "stash" and I am unsure where I originally purchased it and the stripped paper is from Close To My Heart's "Believe" paper packet from the Winter 2011 Idea Book.

I stamped the images and inked the edges using "Grey Wool" and hand coloured in using markers I have on hand. The stamps are from Close to My Heart and I used  Petite Perks W2016 and the "Merry Christmas" is from Festivities D1321. I understand that both of these are now retired and I can't wait for the new Idea Book coming out in July to see what we have for the holidays this year!
