Red and White Christmas


This card came together rather quickly.  I really like cards with a lot of white space, so I tried to incorporate that here along with some texture and a tiny bit of bling.  This is the most complex "looking" card I've made so far for those I'm sending Christmas cards to this year, but it was NOT the most time consuming.  That would have to go to either the Top Note cards or either of the reverse-masked cards at this point.

The inspiration for this card yet again came from SCS.  I love that site!!!  I got my layout idea from kimcrafts and you can see her card HERE.

I will not be posting until next week due to having to get ready to make a drive (possibly in bad conditions - hopefully not!!) to get my middle DD back from a visit she made to my parents' house.  We drive tomorrow to get her and come back Sun.  I've got cards to finish, holiday preparations, wrapping, mailing, cleaning, etc. to do all before we leave TOMORROW.  Aaack!!!  So...until we blog again, take care!!

Stamps: Snow Swirled, Holidays & Wishes
Paper:  Whisper White and Real Red CS
Ink:  Real Red classic ink, White StazOn
Accessories:  Whisper White Taffeta ribbon, Snowflakes CB embossing folder, Big Shot, adhesive-backed rhinestone from Michael's, dimensionals


  1. Gorgeous! I always love the striking contrast between red and white, and the CB'd background just brings out the contrast even more. Love this! And I hope the weather holds for your trip!
