Red and green holiday cards – take 2


I’m attempting to participate in the Operation Write Home No Place like Home Card Drive. To do this, I have to submit a box of cards that are half holiday half general theme. I have plenty of the latter but not so many of the former. I’m working off the Midweek Throwdown Challenge – Red and Green idea. The sentiment so makes me think of Just Judy from Love Actually – “All I want for Christmas is you.”

Here are the cards I made last night –

White cardstock bases, printed paper from a DCWV Christmas pack, corner punch by Fiskars, embroidery floss, Wausau Fleck cardstock for the sentiment, texture fades folder from Sizzix and buttons from my ginormous button stash.

OWH Midweek Throwdown Color Challenge


The Midweek Throwdown this week at Operation Write Home is a color challenge – make cards using red and green.

Here’s my contribution –

I started with a white cardstock base and used the Dot Matrix texture fades on a dark red background paper. The accent paper and sentiment are from a DCWV Christmas pack. Layered on a Wausau fleck cardstock. Bow is embroidery floss.
