Silver & Red Christmas

I made this quick & easy Christmas card and I'll be entering it into Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground #87 as well as Rudolph Day for August 2013.
The backroud was embossed with a SU! square lattice ef, and I added punched elements done with 2 SU! punches - the ornament and mosaic. After punching the silver metallic cardstock from scraps, I embossed each "ornament" with a CB decorative tiles ef, and added strips of silver stickers to "hang" them on the red panel. The sentiment is also from SU! What I like most about this card is that it will only require 1 stamp to mail it! {winner!}

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! Thanks for taking time to stop by and say hello :)

Fabulous card Carol! Love the tree baubles against the deep red so much. Just wait until I post tomorrow's card on my blog - I think we were thinking along very similar lines. I made mine on Friday, almost losing the will to live in the process! :(

Hugs, Di xx
