Gingersnap's Red and Gold Challenge

GingersnapCreations' Color Challenge is Red and Gold, which made me think "CHRISTMAS!!!"  So for this challenge even though it is the middle of May, I made a couple of Christmas cards!

They were quick to make, except for the bling.  I stamped the images with Clear Embossing Distress Ink on red paper, covered in embossing powder, removed excess embossing powder, heated, cut out, mounted  gold paper and then mounted on the card.  I didn't have any red jewels that were the right size so I made some using Ranger Inks Red Pepper Alcohol Ink on clear jewels.  After they dried, I attached to the card!

Hope you are having a fabulous weekend!
