Winter Wonderland Red and White Challenge

I have the goal of continuing to make Christmas cards all year because I've needed so many more than I can keep up with.  The Winter Wonderland is a Christmas Blog challenge. This week the challenge is to use only Red and White except for hair and skin. I used  My Mind's Eye card for the background, CTMH Cranberry and white cardstocks and grosgrain ribbon, and patterned papers from My Mind's Eye Lost and Found "Union Square" (red dots) and Stella and Rose "Gertie." I used an older CTMH stamp set with a girl carrying packages. Her hat once had a very large set of flowers coming off the top, but I easily snipped that off since it was a clear acrylic stamp. I stamped her hat and vest on the red dot paper and cut them out and added. Her hair was stamped red, but I colored it with a brown marker. Her skin was also colored with a light flesh marker that CTMH no longer carries. The sentiment is one of the circles in the CTMH set called Just for the Holidays. It was stamped with Cranberry ink on white like the girl.
