More red and whites - and no it does not relate to footy.........

Still on Christmas cards and playing with some items I have had for ages and not used  yet - like my honeycomb embossing folder. I sat and made a Silhouette file to cut out the hexagons to fit inside the spaces so that I didn't  have to be forced to hand cut them each time I wanted to fill the gaps. See how laziness can cause you to create?

I have shifted my shade of red in the last one to Riding hood red by Stampin' Up after using a heap of my Real Red cardstock. I have found that Fired Brick distress ink works nicely with this colour. I even used the brayered embossing folder technique to create a patterned paper effect as I have hardly and decent sized red pattern paper. Must keep that in mind when I am out and about. 

There are a mix of stamps here from Hot of the Press - Enchanted Christmas, to Technique Tuesday - Christmas sayings, Kaisercraft - Merry Christmas - tree, Spellbinder Heirloom ornaments greeting and the large Merry Christmas does not have a brand on it but it was a cheap end of season one I bought at Riot Art and Craft one year. I love it for a big bold greeting.

Thanks for dropping by and Happy Craftin'..........
