OLW68 - Red and White

This week's challenge at Simplicity was to create a one layer card using only red and white (or cream and white).   I decided to use a red card base for my first card.

 I stamped with versamark and white ink and then added fine detail white embossing powder.  I heat set the embossing powder.  The sentiment on the actual stamp is Season's Greetings, but I masked that off before stamping and then added the Merry Christmas sentiment and also embossed it with white.  The snowflakes are just stickles I added.

For my second card, I really kept it simple.  I stamped a music stamp by Flourishes and then added a sentiment (also Flourishes) at the bottom....super simple.


I think at first I wasn't too happy with this card...but it's growing on me now.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments are much appreciated! Until next time....

♥ Hugs! ♥

So pretty...I never thought of stamping a music sheet in red. It really works for Christmas.

Both cards are fabulous.

These are amazing Susan! The white on red of the first packs a real visual punch and the red on white of the music is very effective too.
