Everywhere to be seen is masses of Red & Green!

Have you noticed that because Christmas is just around the corner,  there is masses of Red & Green everywhere you go.  I have to say I love using these traditional colours on my Christmas Cards and today I have done just that making two cards with lots of red and green.

The first one is using none other than Unity Stamps and the second is a card made with no stamping but using one of my Favorite Paper Brands - Echo Park. 


For this card I have used a stamp from the Unity Set - Generations (not a Christmas Set) and the Sentiment is from the Set - Christmas Bough.  The papers are from the Echo Park Merry Christmas Collection.



The design was inspired by this Sketch which is one of this weeks Sketchy Sunday Challenges over at 365 Cards.  I have flipped it on its side and the tab was inspiration for the half flowers I added to the card, instead of a scallop I have used a Ric Rac Die Cut Strip.  The Holly Leaves and Brad are from Making Memories.  Because I have used some Unity Stamps for this project I have also included this in the Unity Stamp Co Christmas Project Challenge on their facebook Page.

My second card is one not using any stamps simply papers and elements from the Echo Park Merry Christmas Paper Collection and a button and some paper cord from my stash.



I have slowly been making a dint in my Christmas Card List, and will be back to share lots more Christmassy Projects over the coming weeks.

Until next time Happy Stamping!
