Red, green and kraft Christmas

Today, I'm back with a quick and easy card that was inspired by one of the colour combos for the November Christmas colour challenge at the Seven Hills Crafts blog (linky is closing tonight, at 10 pm UK time).

I pulled out one of my Winnie and Walter sets (Comfort + Joy) and some Distress Oxide inks and stamped my images on a scrap of kraft cardstock (Neenah Desert storm) that I had die cut using a stitched rectangle die (Simon Says Stamp). After stamping my sentiment (Sentimental: Winter by W&W), I adhered my panel to a scrap of red cardstock before mounting it to my kraft card base. As a finishing touch, I added a touch of glossy accents on all of my berries.

Places I'm playing:

Seven Hills Crafts - Christmas colour combo
(I went with the classic combo in the middle)

Muse: ChristmasVisions - #90 Any Christmas or winter-themed card

Uniko - #44 Christmas
