Red and White Christmas

                       This week Joan's Garden challenged us to make a red and white Christmas card with a sentiment and some kind of "light".  I challenged myself to keep to the red and white without additional colors and for my light, I used a translucent vellum that I both dry embosed (cuttlebug folder) and wet embossed  with (white pearl) and red.  I hope that can be counted as "light".  I folded the vellum into a Gatefold Card held together with a big red bow.   Untie the big red bow (May Arts silk ibbon) and the inside of the card is simply stamped( on white cardstock)/embossed (using a cinnamon smelling red embossing powder (Cornish Heritage Farms)...It really does give off a cinnamon fragrance....mmmmmm..... The Stamp is by Great Impressions.          
  Hooray!  I've got one Christmas card made...I'll write a personal note inside and it will be ready to mail when the time comes.  I'll just have to figure out to whom I'll send it lol!                 


  1. Lynn your red and white card is beautiful. I like the shine on the front of the card and big red bow. The cinnamon scent would certainly go well with this card. Thanks for joining us this week in the challenge at Joan's Gardens.

  2. very pretty card. that bow is stunning
