Less is More with Red and Green

I've really not had much time to play again this week but I did catch the latest LIM challenge on Saturday and made something which ended up in the bin, then tried again and got a so-so result which I'll share below and then finally I made something properly CAS that I actually like!

This is my so-so - inkylicious Christmas tree swirl glitter embossed in green on kraft and then I used an embossing pen to emboss over the star details so I could emboss them again in red glitter.  Finished with washi tape sentiment.

This is the one I like (well in fact I love it and have made a set of 6 as I still need more Christmas cards this year - I've made tonnes all year but still not enough!).  Very quick, simple and purely CAS.  The door is a die cut (memory box) and the wreath I cut from DCWV sticky backed card on my cameo (very easy to replicate a design in studio to print a lot across your card strip)  The box is from the same shape set cut from paper and then I decorated the wreath with small red gems.  The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse stamped onto a ribbon die (Simon Says Stamps) and then the door is popped up on dimensional foam to allow definition from the white background.
