Red and White xmas

Red and White xmas

This card is 100% inspired by Marlene Lo. I saw her blogpost about using just red and white for Xmas cards. That just so sharp and clean.

I tried to C.A.S.E. it, and it doesn't have the fancy edges she does, but I was pretty pleased with how it turned out. It's nice and clean and seemed to work out just fine. I had to put some bling on him, even though, really, he shouldn't be the one that gets bling-ed.

I had to have ribbon and floss on it. Actually, it's crochet thread from my crochet jewlery class. It's nice and thin, perfect for adding dimension to the project.

Well, I'm starting my French Lessons this week, so wish me luck on that. It's 7 weeks long. So, that should allow me to get to Paris and eat some pastry (not that I'm going anytime soon). If anything I can still point and smile, like I did the first time I went to Europe. :)
