Well I held off as along as I could but you know I am a Christmas Card (and the whole Christmas thing) addict! So today here is my fist card for 2015 which, of course, uses a collection of Sue Wilson's new festive collection for Creative expressions. On this first card I had to add one of the matching stamps to die for the 'Twas the night background stamp as I drew this one for Sue!
Next I cut a large square of the rich red (18x18cm) and added a strip of the gorgeous snowflake border cut in the vintage gold to the right hand side. I mounted the stamped image to the left and tied a strip of two tone satin ribbon in red around the right hand side and added a bow. I left the knot 'naked' as I love the way you can see the two tones of the red at this point.
To finish I cut the Merry Christmas die once form gold and once from rich red. I mounted the gold on top of the red however i slightly offset the gold sentiment to give a shadow.
I hope you like the rich red and gold of my first Christmas Card of 2015, trust me there are many more to come!
