Over at The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up it is the midway point of our challenge. That means it is the turn of the Merry Maidens to share some more fabulous Christmas cards
This paper pack Vintage Damask 2 Red & White Collection designed by Decosse's Dynamite Doodles is up for grabs to the lucky winner who follows the optional twist to feature the Colours of Red & White on your card.
The Sponsor for this challenge is Imagine That Digistamp who is offering the fabulous prize of 3 digistamps (upto $14 value) from her store.
For my card I chose to use JOY Birds set. I just loved the jolly characters and knew it would work really well as the main focal point on a red and white card. I coloured the image with Promarkers and added lots of glitter glue accents.
The candy cane paper is from Holiday Hoopla Patterned Papers Set 2 by Decosse's Dynamite Doodles. This has been printed onto glossy photo paper. I isolated 2 of the candy canes and enlarged them to use as embellishments. Red card stock has been used throughout for the matting and layering.
Finally the sentiment from the digi set comes as a black outline or a coloured version. As it is candy cane colours I used this coloured version with it's pop of red it was the perfect finishing touch.
I do hope you will take part in our challenge and look forward to seeing your creations.
