Red and green Christmas Card

The current challenge over at Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge is to use mainly 'red and green'. There might be a fair bit of cream here (although it looks white in the photo) - but the only other colours are red and green:
I used:

- 6" x 6" cream card stock

- red mirri card behind the image

- backing paper from the Marianne Design 'Merry Little Christmas' paper pack

- a piece of really wide red glittered organza ribbon, with the wire removed, backed with double sided adhesive film and then mounted onto red holographic shiny metallic paper, which also had a self adhesive backing (a right load of fiddling on for what was otherwise a quick and easy make)

- image cut from a 2011 Christmas card - it does look handmade and I spotted that it's from M&S's hand finished range, I also took note of who sent it so they don't get it back this coming Christmas :)

- dark green Josy Rose nail heads

Another one for the box, and it's less than 10 days until Rudolph Day as well - don't say you haven't had a bit of notice :)

  6. Fantastic Crimbo card Di.

    AHA! You're already thinking Rudolph Day . . . I LIKE it! It's wangled it's way inside your head . . . never again will you think of the 25th as anything else other than Rudolph Day! I think that might be a GOTCHA my friend.

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  7. Love the recycled image - far too good to bin - this is a delightful card - thanks for joining in my CHNC challenge 72 - hope to see you again soon. Isn't it strange that the cream looks white and yet when I try to show white cards they don't look white! x

  8. Recycling is good and it's amazing what us crafters can make out of something else! Hope you're enjoying the R&R. Karen x

  9. Hi Di, Another great challenge and a great card, lovely colour combo and and layout nice to see original colours used !!:)x

  10. Funny how you didn't take your crafting stuff with you yet you managed to make a card on that balcony!! And a gorgeous card at that my dear! Hope you have your suntan lotion Honey. xxx

  11. Think your camera must be a distant relation to mine, as it does look white.
    Great card, lovely papers and an M&S image, how posh. lol.
