Red & White Christmas Card Colour Challenge

The current challenge over at '52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown is a colour challenge - Red and white.  I have a photo showing ten CAS (Clean & Simple) cards to share today. :-) 

The cards are all A2, with a red card stock base, a white embossed panel on the outside, and a white panel inside stamped with Christmas words. 

My Mom likes bright and cheerful Christmas cards, and usually orders about 50 from me. So these are going into her stash.  The words "Wishing you a beautiful holiday season" were stamped below the embossed village in red ink. 

I also added glitter glue highlights to every single one of those embossed dots.

Every. Single. One. 

I have been playing with my Sizzix Flip-It dies, and have three cards finished. These ones are for special occasions so they were a little more time consuming than most of my cards. I can't share them yet though. One I can share at the end of the month, but the other two have to be saved until August. 

Have a great weekend - thanks for stopping by today.
