Great color combo

Bonnie has a great challenge for the https://caschristmascardchallenge this month using red, white and kraft. This is such a wonderful color combination that I wanted to jump right in. I used Catherine Pooler Sand Castle ink to be the kraft and inked up the Sizzix poinsettia embossing folder. Using a Poppy clear stamp I stamped the sentiment in red ink and mounted the panel on SU red cardstock.

I love all the cards submitted for this challenge so far. 




Be kind to one another.

  14. One of my favourite 3D embossing folders, I love what you did with it for the Red, Kraft and white challenge. I must remember to use velum for my sentiments (great inspiration). Thanks for joining us at CAS Christmas :)

  16. I love this color combo too Brenda, it just works doesn't it?! Your card turned out stunning! I am so loving that beautiful embossing folder you used. I need to ink up my embossing folders more often, it sure gives a beautiful look and lets the embossed part pop. Love how your poinsettias pop off the kraft colored background. I have been cutting my papers for join in this challenge too and so agree with you in there there hasn't been a card posted for this challenge that I'm not in love with. Hugs, Brenda

  18. This is stunning, Brenda! Your white dry embossed poinsettia is absolutely gorgeous and eye-catching! Wonderful use of the ef technique, and so clever to use the vellum sentiment strip! It doesn't block the beautiful image behind it. Thank you so much for sharing this beauty at CAS Christmas!

  22. Such a peaceful, fantastic design holiday season design. I hugely admired the fact that you've begun making your Christmas cards this early on in the year. If I manage to get even so much as one of mine complete before Halloween, it is nothing shy of a small miracle. :D
