Black and Red Christmas Card

Hello! It's been awhile since I played along with Jingle Belles - my Christmas card mojo was sorely lacking !!! But , if I want to get  a decent number of cards to add to my Christmas card stash, I better start creating!!! This week the Belle's( click here for this week's prompt) have teamed up with EAD designs for another terrific challenge and there's even a prize up for grab!
I'm also entering my card over at Freshly Made Sketches.... they have a sketch challenge this week that really got me thinking;

And here's my interpretation of the sketch......

There's absolutely no stamping on this card! The tree is a rub-on from Kaiser Craft, as are the
elements on the  envelope. The Peace on Earth sentiment is from a Making Memories rubon that is so old that I had totally forgotten about it!!  I embossed the red cardstock with a Sizzix embosing folder.

Even the inside was designed with only rubons and cardstock! I love the non traditional colors  ( for Christmas ) of red, black and vanilla together.

Anyhoo, that's my card ... thanks for stopping by!


  1. Simple and elegant! Love how this turned out!

  2. Beautiful Christmas card. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  3. What a great card ... love the sentiment on the three panels!
    Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!!!

  4. Look at you rockin' the rub-ons ... what a perfect design for that great sketch ... so very glad you joined us at jingle belles.

  5. Fantastic! Love that tree. Glad you joined us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

  6. oh hooray! miss candy is back!!!! we've missed you, JINGLE BELLE, so pleased you've found your holiday mojo and have come along to play! i ♥LOVE♥ that fabulously dramatic color combination and i'm soooooooooo impressed that the entire card--inside and out--and that gorgeous envelope are ALL done with just rub-ons! that is some clever crafting right there!!! ♥♥♥
