(**For the Wilson Designs Sneak Peak click here**)
Just a quick post for you! I was inspired by a couple of color challenges out there that used Red and White which is such a pretty combination this time of year. My inspiration started with the polka dots which came from an article I saw in a magazine (I can't remember which one I was flipping through, but it wasn't one I owned). They used Big Red Polka Dots as a background to decorate for Christmas. Using that as my starting point, I decided to just use this on a quarter of the card.
I distressed my DeNami Designs Small Solid Circle to create the pattern I was looking for. You can achieve this distressed look by lightly rubbing a paper towel across the stamp before you stamp the image on your card.
I used the DeNami Designs Solid Decorative Crest to create a background paper on my red panel by using tone on tone stamping. I also used DeNami Designs Medium Curly Christmas Tree as my focal image stamping this in craft white. I added a snowflake decorative border to the side. I added the punched snowflakes to the front of my card. I tied a satin white bow and wrapped another bow with red and white bakers twine! My Merry Christmas sentiment is from Wilson Designs Snowy Wishes!
