Red Christmas Delights

It's another Sunday, and a Christmas Challenge on Sparkle's blog. This week, she said red and white! I saw a card in the Hero's Arts catty, at least I think that's where I saw it last night, where they used white on white layers. I thought it looked so cool! I had to try it today with my red and white cards. I went with easy layouts, but I feel like both cards turned out darling!
On this one, I used TAC's ornamental snowflakes stamp set. I stamped it in Palette ink Moulin Rouge. The snowflake cuttlebug folder is sprayed in Snowflake Glimmer Mist. I heat embossed the snowflake with sparkle red embossing powder. Cut it out with nesties. The sentiment is from a retired TAC holiday sentiment set.


On the next card, I used a stamp I found at AC Moore last year. I thought this image was so stinking cute! I covered the white parts of the dress with fun flock, with glitter added to it. I put red fun flock on the tree, so the tree is fuzzy. I wanted to give the tree something, but green wasn't an option, so I thought the red fuzz would do the trick. I paper pierced around the white border to try to help it show up better for the photo. I really like how it looks white on white layering. I added stickles to the mistletoe and the red dress to the center girl. The mistletoe is the only place I cheated with color. It has a hint of green stickles on it!
Supplies: PTI Pure poppy cardstock, PTI white cardsock, fun flock, stickles, TAC stamps, CB folders, glimmer mist, Palette ink Noir and Moulin Rough.
