The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

Today's card was created for the Card Concept challenge. While I simply love everything about this photo I was most drawn to the red and white and the gingham. I didn't have any gingham paper but I had some pretty plaid that I wanted to use for this. I wanted to keep the design simple so I chose to basically keep the colors to red, black, and white while adding a bit of shimmer with gold touches. I started with a white card base and then layered on some black cardstock from Stampin' UP. I then added a layer of the plaid paper from Crafty Secrets. I die cut a small white panel using Gina Marie Designs dies and then stamped the tree sentiment from the Kaisercraft Basecoat Christmas stamp set using Versafine onyx black ink for a nice crisp impression. I popped the focal panel up using some foam tape, added a few onyx black sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and a few dots of gold metallic detailing using an American Crafts gold metallic pen. So simple and so pretty! I hope you enjoy!
