A Red & White Christmas

The other day I was playing with some of the new Stampin' Up! Christmas Cocoa Designer Series Paper which you can only get when you purchase the Welcome Christmas Bundle available only until 30th November and was inspired to get out my Real Red cardstock. I have been using Cherry Cobbler quite a bit as it goes beautifully with the Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper.

This card is where I started, I loved the effect of the 'furry' (or flocked) damask paper and it worked perfectly when simply punched out using the Ornament Punch. I layered white with Real Red to give a framed effect and stamped the Noel stamp from the Many Merry Messages stamp set.

I loved the clean look of the card so decided to make a few more using different ornaments.

I ended up making a set of 4 cards, the cards are 4 1/8" square, I used some of the Delightful Decorations ornament stamps (one of them is embossed in white embossing powder). I also decided to mix up the bows, I've used white taffeta, red taffeta, white grosgrain, and some white string.

Have a good weekend.
