Christmas in Red and White

 It's probably a good thing that I'm panicking over Christmas and it's only just gone November - normally I start panicking in December.  Of course it's a lot easier to make Christmas cards when the shops are decorated and Christmas music is playing everywhere.  Which is why Christmas Card Challenges such as Festive Friday are so fantastic.  If you're short on inspiration you will come away full of ideas.  Not just from the design team either, there are some super talented card makers out there!!!  Here is the inspiration photo for Festive Friday #43.

… and here are my individual cards.  

Sorry if some of the sentiments are a bit blurred - I think the glossily accented bows and holly upset the automatic focus.

Stamps used were WMS Heirloom Patterns, WMS Vintage Christmas Backgrounder, WMS Mini Pinstripe (for the last present) and WMS Ornate Ornaments (for the sentiment).  Dies used were Sizzix Originals Gift #2 and Sizzix Holiday Lamppost (for the holly) and Spellbinders Classic Ovals for mounting the sentiment.

Hope you're inspired too !!!

Thanks for stopping by,
