Red and Green Christmas Tree

My latest Christmas card is going to be entered into three challenges - 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown colour challenge to use 'Traditional Red and Green', Sparkles Christmas Challenge 'Ditch the Design Papers' and Christmas Cards All Year Round 'Snowflakes'.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk 
Stamp: Woodware 'Bubble Bloom - Festive Tree'
Embossing: Snowflake embossing folder (magazine freebie)
Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia
Other: Dark red card candi, green nail heads, lime green Stickles, Wink of Stella

To make this quick card, I embossed the front of the card and stamped the Festive Tree in the centre.  I decorated the tree with card candi, nail heads and Stickles and then highlighed the snowflakes with a Wink of Stella.

Gorgeous card and the red and green looks stunning against the white embossing folder.
I bought this stamp last year, had to take the first one back as it didn't stamp right, the second one got thrown in the bin as that one didn't stamp right either, I will buy the peel offs in future if I want to use this image. Had loads of Woodware stamps last year and all stamp extremely well except this one, well done you for making such a good job of the stamp.

Stunning! I love the clean, crisp and elegant look to your card, as well as the detail on the card candi. Lovely. Thanks so much for playing along with 52CCT this week, and I'm sorry to be so late commenting xx

This is the sort of card you can make a batch of and just swap the colours around. I love the simplicity of your design - totally gorgeous!! Love that embossing folder as well! Thank you so much for entering the CCAYR (Snowflakes) Challenge this month, lots of luck to you.
