I really like the colour combination of pure red and pale blue and sometimes it's nice to make Christmas cards that actually don't really have any particularly "Christmassy" elements (well, except the sentiment that says 'Merry Christmas' ;) ). For this card I folded the card blank from white cardstock and dry embossed it with a Cuttlebug folder 'Moroccan Screen'. I made the "snowflake" with a doily I die cut with a Papertrey Ink die, a pale blue circle (a Spellbinders die), and a smaller doily I die cut and stamped with a PTI die and stamp. I stamped the pale blue circle with the Hero Arts stamp 'Flourish Background' and some Versamark Dazzle ink (it's such a shame you can't really see the dazzle in the piccie, but it's there, believe me). The red ink I used is Hero Arts Shadow Ink 'Red Royal'. I finished the snowflake with a tiny red button. I stamped the sentiment onto an acetate strip and attached another strip of acetate underneath it and taped some washi tape onto that second strip. As a final touch I used some red satin ribbon and made a bow with it.
