Blue & Red Christmas

Hi guys. Is it cold enough for you yet??? I love the snow-y weather...makes me want to curl up with a cup of cocoa and a great book! :) Or get some crafting in when the mojo comes round...

Today I have a pretty simple card to show off. This card started off a little on the CAS side....

...when I hit the CAS card making groove, I find it really difficult to make myself use designer papers. Ever since I got my Cuttlebug, it's been a lot of textures...and/or just stamping on cardstock, etc. when I make cards....and my designer paper gets left in the drawers...waiting...and waiting...and waiting...

Every now and then I force myself to think outside the CAS style...

I love the way this card turned out! Blueish designer paper and red -- I know the combination works, but for Christmas? I wasn't too sure, but it actually worked out nicely. It doesn't look "patriotic (American of course), does it?  I sure hope not! :p LOL

Leave me a comment and I'll drop by your blog as well. I hope I have inspired you to think outside your box a little. :) Happy Crafting :)
