Christmas in Red

Just managed to make another Christmas card yesterday whilst DH was out fishing. This one is following the theme over at Jingle Belles which is red. The card must be predominantly the colour red. So here is my take.

The card is a 6x6 cream card blank which I have matted deep red glitter card. I have used up several scraps on this too such as the Kaisercraft edge strip, the Santa paper and the Merry cut which is one I made years ago using a loaned Cricut cartridge.
The main image is by Bee Crafty and is called Claus and he is just lovely to stamp and emboss. I used JudiKins Rockin Red embossing powder which gives him a sort of golden red glow. He also got a touch of glitter card behind before going down using foam pads. I added 3 tiny buttons which I have had years and another stamp from I think Hero Art saying Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by today

I am also entering this card in to the following challenges
