Red + Green + anything Christmasy

I am a day late posting these cards!  Too involved in making more cards to sell at the Edmonton Twins and Triplets show in 10 days!  Eek!  Then I forgot to post... Ooops!  Sorry for the lateness.

This week Priyanka asked us to pick an image to create something Red + Green + anything Christmasy.  So I chose to use one of her free images: Love Me Not.  I coloured the images with my watercolor crayons and a waterbrush.
After colouring, I cut out the image with Spellbinders Labels 20 and hand cut the red velvet mini mat.  The largest green mat is cut out of gold textured paper. (gold just does not photograph well!)  The 5x6.5" card is covered with red shimmer paper I put through my Cuttlebug and the Spellbinders M-Bossabilities Mystic folder.  I tucked a gold ribbon behind it before adhering it to the card front.  To finish it off, I added a Making Memories 'Merry Christmas' fabric label.

For my second card, I decided to use Mojo Monday's weekly sketch.  So I am also entering it in this week's challenge.  I used Spellbinders Labels 28 to cut out this coloured image and the mat is red mulberry paper.  The 5x6.5" card was covered with red shimmer card then an layer of green Sizzix cardstock that was run through my Cuttlebug 'Christmas Countdown' embossing folder.  Michaels ribbon is down the right side and top and some poinsettia flower charms someone sent me are the finishing touches.

Hugs to all!  Have a great weekend!
