The inspiration for this card came from a packaging/branding idea I found on Pinterest. I loved the 2-toned red look I saw, so I tried it out on a simple Christmas card. I love how it turned out. All products Stampin' Up! Don't forget to scroll all the way to the bottom of this post to see more info about my personal "I Want Ink" promotion ending Nov. 30, because everyone needs more color in their life!
Want to hear something funny? I ended up using Rich Razzleberry ink to stamp the pine images. I took a scrap of Real Red and tried stamping with Cherry Cobbler ink, but it was just too dark for the look I wanted. Rich Razzleberry ended up working perfectly. I made the partial gold frame by using 2 sizes of Layering Squares Framelits and Gold Glimmer paper. The Big Shot Magnetic Platform really comes in handy with projects like this and right now it is only $26!! I would grab one while you can. It is my most used platform due to my heavy use of metal dies. Sale ends tonight.
