Sled Ride In The Winter

Hi Crafty Friends,

The card design today does not have the usual color scheme for a Holiday card… but it is still one of my favorites. It might be that I love black and the contrast. In any event, I couldn’t resist making this color combination.

Besides the black, red and white, I love Pinkfresh’s Squirrel Friends stamp and die set. These squirrels are so cute! The other great thing is that I think you could use them year ’round. I am eager to see them in a forest meadow scene.

The card is simple to make but the beautiful dies and paper from Alexandra Renke create an elegant design when finished!

As an extra bonus, these dies make wonderful ‘bows’ for gifts. Check out the image below.
