I saw this colour scheme on the internet and decided to give it a go. I've used kraft, basic black and real red cardstock linked with gold embossing and real red stamping. The tree on the left is from Lovely as a Tree and on the right Season of Joy including the swirls. Real red ribbon in different widths and gold brads finish off these simple but elegant cards for the festive season.
If you'd like to learn about heat embossing and other techniques why not sign up for my hostess/techniques club starting in February 2009. The club is free to join, but you do need to commit to spend a minimum of £25 excl. P&P each month for 6 months. Each club member takes at turn at receiving all the hostess benefits for their month. It's a great way to learn new skills, meet new friends and budget for stocking up your craft cupboard. You will also earn some fabulous exlusive hostess products along the way as a bonus. Please email me for further details.
