Red for Remembrance

With Remembrance Day occurring next Sunday, our theme for this week's challenge on Cute Card Thursday is really appropriate - 'Red for Remembrance'.  Our prize sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp.

We'd like you to interpret this theme however you wish, I chose to create a Christmas card with Red as the predominant colour. 

The background paper is a magazine freebie from  Hot Off The Press.  I used a set of nesties to cut out the image and a layer of red metallic card (which I also embossed with a snowflake design using a Cuttlebug embossing folder. 

The tree was cut using a Marianne's die and I created the baubles by using a regular office punch and a scrap of the red metallic card.  After punching the tiny circles from the card I used a ball tool to curve them slightly before attaching with PinFlair glue, then I added Platinum Stickles to create a tinsel garland around the tree.   The image is from Magnolia and I coloured Tilda with Copics.  Sentiment is from Lili of the Valley, stamped then heat embossed using sparkly red embossing powder.   The red gingham ribbon was from my stash.

I hope you've enjoyed today's project, check out the full details of this week's challenge over on the Cute Card Thursday blog.
