Light it up

I made this card for this week's challenge at Winter Wonderland. Unfortunately, Mr. Linky had already gone home by the time Blogger allowed me to write a new message.

Actually, I had already concluded this morning that I would not have time to play along this week, when I suddenly remembered the Christmas light font I had played around with in 2010 after downloading it from the Internet. I had a Dutch version ready to go. All I had to do was print it on a piece of white cardstock, add some embossing (Cuttlebug folder) and some red ribbon and paste it onto a red card. Simple as that!

I think I'll also make a version in English with the text Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays. Fewer letters means I can enlarge the font a bit more.
