Red and Green Christmas

A big thank you to Lisa for inviting me to be a Guest Designer for Christmas with the Cuties  The theme of this challenge is 'Red and Green' and I've used a cute Lili of the Valley precoloured image for my card and the remainder of the green check paper that I used for my Rudolph Day card.

I'm entering Die-cut Divas 'For the Love of Animals/Pets', Sparkles Monthly Challenge 'Let's Go Green', Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes', Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes' and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.


Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Christmas Mix' precoloured image
Dies: Cheery Lynn 'Snowflake Set 2', Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Lacy Squares'
Card: Red matt, white glitter
Paper: Lili of the Valley 'Twas the Night'
Other: Red nailhead, Stampendous Fun Flock, Wink of Stella

I trimmed the green checked paper, layered it onto red card and attached it to the card.  The precoloured image was layered onto green paper and a red Lacy Square die cut, before being attached to the centre of the card.  I die cut a snowflake from white glitter card and attached it to the top of the topper, adding a red nailhead to the centre. To finish I added Fun Flock to the dog's hat and highlighted the image with a Wink of Stella.
