Christmas Double Challenge

Hello everyone,

Today's card covers off two challenges. Today's awesome 365 Cards challenge is red and white stripes and this week's Stampin' for the Weekend challenge is red, green and gold.

I wanted some texture on this card so I used some red and white Bazzill Textures paper to create the background. The image is Inkadinkado Holiday Silhouettes embossed with Close To My Heart Gold and highlighted with Holly red Stickles. The white and green paper is from my scrapbox and were cut with a Spellbinders label. The green paper is also textured with Sizzix Small Dots. The ribbon is Michael's Holiday Cheer and the snowflake brads, also highlighted with some Holly red Stickles, are from Multicrafts.

The photo doesn't do the background justice but there is a great texture and sheen to this card. I also love Inkadinkado's Holiday Silhouettes stamp set. It is absolutely striking! If I couldn't ever buy another stamp set, I'd be fine with just this one. I also had to use this ribbon, it has candy canes on it and I love it! I actually have only enough ribbon for maybe two more cards so I use it judiciously.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
