red and white christmas

 Hi all!! It's christmas time again!!
I have my mum here this weekend and we're going to my craft club tomorrow too!! My little boy has been ill all week and there has been a severe lack of sleep! not sure I know how I survived those first few months feeling like this all the time though!!
I used a white cardstock and embossed some lines down and across it. Then I distressed the whole piece of card with memento red dew drop ink. I stamped the snowflake with the same ink and used a My Minds Eye stamp. i mounted this on red card.

I attached a piece of red ribbon down the side. I stamped the baubles with the same ink and the same stamp set. I glittered one of them and added Anitas 3D gloss to the other two.
The sentiment came from a freebie last christmas and the heart and tree are from my stash of bits I bought a while back.
I stamped the bauble on the inside too.
I am entering this in the following challenges:


  1. Love it! I really like the way you've created the impression of a grid with the embossed lines and distressing. The baubles are lovely. Thanks for playing along with 52CCT this week!

  2. Love the red and white - beautiful card - love the baubles and that squiggle tree - thanks for sharing this for my CHNC challenge extra for May - hope to see you again soon. x
