Christmas season in green and red

Hello and welcome.

The colour challenge over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown calls for red and green. I used the Christmas Season stamp set by Stampin Up to create my card in real red and different shades of green…

I stamped the foliage on whisper white card in a cluster using garden green, old olive and lucky limeade inks, and crumb cake for the stems of the berries.  I added the berries in real red ink.

After stamping, I ran the card through my bigshot machine using the square lattice embossing folder by Stampin Up – it gave it almost a fabric look, which I loved.  I then adhered this to an A6 real red card base.

The sentiment is from the Holly Jolly Wishes stamp set, also by Stampin Up, stamped in black ink on whisper white card, and adhered to the card over a strip of vellum with foam tape.

I hope you’ve been inspired to join the challenge this week – we’d love to see your creations.

Enjoy the Easter weekend.
