"Ornamental" Red and Gold Card

Vicki here with my December inspiration for you!

I'm a traditional kind of gal when it comes to the Christmas holidays.  I love the deep, rich reds and greens along with the ever present gold and silver that accompany them during the season.  Here at Craft-Dee BowZ, we are working with these colors during the month of December following a Christmas/holiday theme for our projects.

I created a card using red and white with gold accents.   The fabulous ribbon in our DT package this month was perfect to adorn the top of this Christmas ornament!

"Merry Christmas"

The card base is deep red cardstock matted with white pearl, embossed paper.  I used a folder that reminded me of falling snow as the background.  The ornament is a two part die-cut, the base and the over layer.   I added a gold jump ring at the top of the ornament along with a red/gold bow created with my amazing Craft-Dee BowZ tool.  Making bows is an easy task when using this tool. The sentiment sticker was another fun treat that came with our DT product.  It's matted with both white and gold paper cut with one of my favorite tag die-cuts.  I used pop dots on the back of the ornament and sentiment tag for added dimension.

Wow, this is gorgeous! Your ribbon bow is stunning and now I must find out your die cut - I think I need this one! Will you share the source, please?

So beautiful! I love the beautiful ribbon bow as it matches so well with the over all design. And, what an awesome ornament die. I wish I could find that one. I just love it.

What a beautiful card. The bow is the perfect accent to that ornament. Really stunning.

This card is extremely elegant. I haven't used any of those sticker type thingys, but have some that I picked up at a convention. They're among my "unused yet" items in my craft room. I think this is the most elegant and gorgeous card I've seen this season. The gold and cranberry--or beautiful with the gold and white. And one of the most impressive parts of this card is the bow. The loops are so perfect and the center of that bow is BEAUTIFUL. I haven't yet mastered that...still practicing. I love this card and would like to put my order in for 30 of them to be used as my Christmas cards next year. Hugs, Gail
