FFC26 - Silent Night


Time for a new Festive Friday Challenge! Here's the inspiration photo:



I went pretty literal, mimicking the shape of the dipped-cookies. I still had this new Hero Arts stamp out on my desk from the other day when I used it to make this card. I don't buy stamps like this very often because I think that being so detailed, it can be difficult to use them in different ways. So part of me was determined to use the stamp differently and I think it came together very well.

I used Soft Suede as my brown and I just love how the Real Red pops on it! The holly is an old PTI die.

I hope you'll join us! The deadline is Wednesday March 12.

How unexpected to see a Christmas card in cookie colours, Ardyth ... and how fabulous! The pops of colour and the frame look brilliant with the soft suede! Anita :)
