It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players! Today, sweet Joanne has a color challenge which is perfect for the holiday season!

Red and Green Holiday Card

I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to create a Christmas card in traditional hues of red and green, accented with gold. I hope you enjoy this red and green holiday card.

I’ll admit it. I love today’s card. This is such a pretty color combination.  The gold foil plays well with both the red and green, lending it warmth.  And what can I say…the Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder adds such beautiful texture.

This card is a snap to make!  Here are the details:

  • The card base is a piece of 4-1/4″ x 11″ Thick Whisper White cardstock, which I scored at 5-1/2″.
  • Using the Detailed Deer thinlits, I cut the deer out of a piece of 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ Gold Foil.  I then adhered this piece to the card base, and saved the deer.
  • The Shaded Spruce layer is 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″.   The Real Red banner is 3-7/8″ x 1″.   Both of these pieces were embossed with the Swirls & Curls folder.
  • The designer paper panel is 2″ x 3-5/8″, matted onto a piece of 2-1/8″ x 3-3/4″ Real Red cardstock. It was adhered to the card base using dimensionals.
  • The deer is “popped” up on dimensionals.
  • Five red rhinestones add a touch of bling.
