Happy Wednesday morning. I have a Christmas White and Red Sprig card to share with you today. You could use the design for an occasion I just happen to be working on Christmas right now. The Honeyblossom Sprig is from Memory Box. I die cut the Spellbinders Nestabilities Floral Oval and then used a Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Oval to cut out the center.
I doubled the mounting tape behind the Floral Oval because I wanted to give the frame more dimension. I used the Classic Oval large again with red cardstock and attached it behind the Floral Oval. Next I embossed another piece of white cardstock using the Cuttlebug Polka Dots and glued it under the frame.
I die cut the Honeyblossom Sprig in brown and red cardstock and then cut and glued the red flowers over the brown ones. I die cut four Cherry Lynn Designs Lace Corner Deco F with red cardstock and coated them with Sakura Hobby Craft 3D Crystal lacquer. I also coated the red flowers from the sprig with the Lacquer. Once dry I glued the flower sprig to the frame and also the lace Corners. To complete I punched a red Cardinal from a Martha Stewart craft punch.

Hi Diane! Was coming to leave you some tea potter love-but surprise no tea party card! You should join us on Tuesdays for our challenges. Everyone is welcome to join in and we have so much fun making our cards and then sending them to the recipient.
All that being said-your gallery is filled with lovely cards-you do wonderful works of art! This red and white Christmas card is spectacular and could so easily be turned into a Valentine card! Thanks for your comment on my card, as it brought me to your gallery and I so enjoyed looking at your artwork! Happy Stamping! :)
