for this card I used the sketch as the basis of my design, using just three elements. I kept this one really simple, with just the red and touches of black on the white. the background was stamped with the dots, then the sentiment matt and layered on top, with the Christmas ornament placed as the focal point. I think the dots and the classic contrast between the colours gives the card a clean modern feel. keeping things this simple also means it could be a great one to make in batches this Christmas !!
