Red Christmas Cards

Just a few Christmas I made this weekend, all using a shade of red!

This first one is for Make It Monday's Challenge #43 to use pleated ribbon! OMW what a nightmare this ribbon is. At first I was going to sew it down, but decided that it might spoil the already striped ribbon so just used tape to hold it and as soon as I had glued everything together the ribbon started pinging back up out of its pleats! So I then added some more tape to the underside of each pleats and that didn't work, so I tried glue dots and that held the pleats down for a little longer so I added even more dots and finally they stayed put! I just wish I had sewn them now! LOL

My next card is for Farm Fresh Friday's Spy Day Challenge #9 - I used the same layout with a few added extras. I also used the colours from Colour Create's Challenge #85 to use red, green and white with the option of snowflakes as well. I used my new Tim Holtz Evergreen Bough ink, which is virtually a perfect match for Glorious Green from SU, which I was never a fan of, so I don't think this one will be getting used much!

And my final red Christmas card for today is for Mojo Challenge #217 for the sketch! Just has to make a hot cup of cocoa for this one!

And that's all from this post folks. Thanks for stopping by!
