I chose an emboss resist technique for this card, and I definitely kept my red and green separate with a band of white. No one needs "mud". Inspired this week by 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.
I love the subtly of those ornaments in the background. That white embossing powder pops a bit.
I used a silver cardstock for my "jolly" die.
I hope you find some time to create today . . . tomorrow . . . the weekend is coming.
