Peppermint Christmas


Supplies : Ribbon, 2008 Holiday Tags and Warm Happiness stamp sets by Papertrey Ink; Pattern Paper by Basic Grey (double sided); Glitter Cardstock by Doodlebug; Cardstock by Bazzil; Buttons and Ink by CTMH; waxy flax; 3D foam squares; Punches by Marvy

When Sparkle posted that the added challenge for this week was going to be to use just red and white, the first thing that popped into my head was Peppermint! And for me that meant candy canes, lol. But I don't have any stamps with candy canes in them so I opted for something else I love during the holiday - peppermint tea and mint hot cocoa :D This card was the simple one and took me less than 10 minutes with the girls interrupting me even!


I can totally see this card with a cute red and white snowflake mug set, some mint hot cocoa, and some candy canes! This one took me quite a while, probably because I made it first and was trying to get my mojo going. It was a real challenge to use just the red and white at first because I kept looking at the paper and thinking 'it just needs something more'. I'm so used to putting a lot of color on my projects that having only one color aside from white didn't feel complete until I had finished the card, embellies and all. In the end I really feel in love with this simple red and white palette ^_~ I hope you enjoy! Check out the Sunday Christmas Card Challenge and Sparkle's darling Tilda card on her blog and have a lovely Sunday!
