Non-Traditional Black and Red Christmas Cards

This year I wanted to go with a new colour scheme for Christmas and it's going to be Black and Red.  I decided this when I saw these amazing black glass Christmas tree ornaments with feathers around the top, which also come in red.  Then I realized, that the month before when I had ordered my supplies from Close to My Heart to make these cards, I had also ordered Black and Red.....It must be a Black and Red it mom is going to freak....she hates black....LOL..I think I need to slip out to the local dollar store and pick up some black feather boa's for my tree as well.....

I used silver ink and Close to My Heart B1376 Wings stamp to create my back ground paper.

I used the same silver ink and Close to My Heart C1423 Captured Moments to create my popped up image which I bordered in the same red I used for the card base.

The mess I made while designing this card.
