Double D Traditional Christmas

The Double D challenge this time is to use red, white and green (optional gold) for  traditional Christmas Cards. Darlene put this  spectacular mood board together for us.  Our entire team is so appreciative of the wonderful inspiration they put together for us each month. Are you ready to be inspired? I love the fully decked mantel, the lovely tablescape and cute truck and tree against the plaid,but I went with the decorated banister and stairway.


I decided I would do a double Z fold card. I love how easy they are to make and you have so many options of ways to decorate. I started with a Gina K red card stock and layered that with white that embossed with a Swiss dot embossing folder. (  I wish some company would do that design in a larger size). Of course, at Christmas time, you will see these Spellbinder  poinsettias on most of my cards. I start making them in June so I have a stash of them on hand for the holidays. This IO pine branch has been used so many times the the color is wearing off the back of the die. I get my money's worth from these dies. Three Gina Marie pine cones and a .... flourish finised finished the front of the card.  I used the IO  alphabet for the block letters and some IO snowflakes in between. A few sequins in red to finish the design.

There is a fabulous IO die for the prize this challenge so bring out the red, white and green and link up your creation for a chance to win....
