Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow

Welcome to another Saturday showcasing the wonderful Christmas images at Sugar Creek Hollow. This week we were challenged to use Red and White colors only on our cards - perfectly fitting for the season! I chose to highlight two of the Christmas digi stamps in my card this week. This shimmery Christmas card was made using "Butterfly Angel" and "Winter Scene" from the Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe.

The "Winter Scene" image is fantastic on its own with many ways to highlight the sentiment. Here, I've printed it twice and popped up the sentiment off the background and then mounted that on a panel punched with a MS border punch.  Both the "Winter Scene" and the "Butterfly Angel" were colored red in my photoshop software and spritzed with a shimmer spray right after they came out of my printer.  The photo below shows the sparkly effect a little bit better.

I added stickles along the edges of both digi images as well as the background paper from Webster Pages. A few elaborate pearl embellishments and some lace and the card is complete.

Please wander by the Sugar Creek Hollow blog and see the other beautiful red and white artwork from the design team. There you'll get some great inspiration for creating your own vintage looking Christmas cards. And we welcome you to enter the challenge on the SCH blog with your own red and white creation.

Thanks for stopping by in this busy holiday season!

Hey girl,
Your description makes it all sound so easy, but I see pure genius here! I never would have thought about using these two images together and yet they work wonderfully, your lace touches and of course just that right amount of bling make this a real masterpiece. Pure genius!!

Oh my gosh! I never would have thought to change the color of the winter scene. I think I've changed every other digi but have never even thought of that one. It's gorgeous! I love the pearl on the star and how beautiful the angel looks with the other stamp. Your border punch and lace also give this such a delicate vintage feel. I LOVE it!

Wow Sharon! This is just "drop-dead" gorgeous! I love how you changed the two images to red ink - they look fabulous together and with that lovely DP - double WOW! Your border punch and lace are scrumptious as well as the final touch with the spritzing - fantastic job this week!
