Red, Gray, and White Christmas Card

Hi, Friends.....

I made several different variations of this Christmas card using the Stamper's Anonymous - TH Christmas Miracle and the Viva la Verve November Sketch.

I also drew inspiration for this card from a couple of lovely cards by Heather over at the Winnie & Walter Rerun Challenge for this month.  I adore the wonderful layering and the pretty doilies she used.

Supplies used include:
Stamper's Anonymous - TH Christmas Miracle
Versafine Ink in Satin Red
Clear Sparkle Embossing Powder
Winnie & Walter - Big Bang Confetti Cutaways die set (for stars)
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set
DCWV Glitter and Solid Cardstock scraps
Doily from my stash

Which one of these variations do you like better this red/gray/white one? Or the black/gold HERE. I might put one more variation up here on my blog and then put a few others over on Flickr. :)

Thank you so much for stopping by!

  5. Toe sharks? TOE SHARKS?! hee hee ha ha ho ho.... wait there was a card? And a downright decent one at that. I think I like colored version better than black and gold.

  11. ooooh, this is the stamped image that you told me about and it's even better than I expected! LOVE this red, white and gray version so much! The doily adds to the vintage appeal and that DCWV paper is so beautiful.

  12. A gorgeous card and I love the Santa stamp. Barbxx

  13. I would never have know what to do with a stamp this complex, but you used it perfectly! I like this one much better than the black and gold one (the embossing loses a bit of the crispness of the image).We are always happy to see your work at the HeARTful Stamping Challenge!

  14. Oh I love this. Thanks for sharing this with us at Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge in November. Sorry I am a little late commenting. But better later than never?
    Happy crafting!
