OLW26 - What's Black and White and Red All Over?

The challenge at One Layer Wonders this week is What's Black and White and Red all over?


I did two cards for this challenge. It's been a great way to get started on Christmas cards.
On the first card I stamped and embossed the candy canes and embellished with stickles. I finished with a hand drawn frame to ground the images on the white background.
This card is also for the Christmas Card Challenge #48 to include candy canes, or some kind of Christmas treat, on your Christmas cards.


This time, I reversed the color combination letting the bold red background take center stage with some white embossed jingle bells. I used the FTL114 sketch again for this card.
