Earlier this week I was really struggling with this challenge - all my ideas had red as a flood of colour, rather than a splash! So I spent a while going through my stamp catalogue and saw this tree and the little dot lights. I had a light bulb moment! I cut a panel of white card slightly smaller than the base. I stamped the tree in black ink and added little red Christmas lights. I stamped a greeting using a lovely script stamp.Then I embossed the panel to suggest falling snow and finished by adding some sparkle to the lights and covering them with glossy accents. I used dimensional tape to attach the panel to the front of the card. On the inside I cut a mat layer of red design paper. On the white panel I stamped a greeting in red and added a few silver snowflakes.
I'm submitting this card to the current challenge at Christmas Cards All Year Round - CCAYRSep, where they want to see Shabby Chic (not so much) or monochromatic - yes! Do visit our blog to see more inspiration from the rest of the team. You've got until midnight (BST) Friday 16th September (7.00pm EDT) to play along. I took a close-up photo of the little Christmas tree to show the dimension and sparkle in the little red Christmas lights:
I really like this design - it's quick and easy to produce, so I think I'm going to make a few more. I'll change up the colours, but I like that it's flat and will be easy to post. That's all for now! Have fun.
Lovely CAS card Deborah! Love the pop of red.
