Three Times the Fun!

It's time for another Cooking It Up with Katie challenge. This week we're sponsored by Stamping Dragon and the recipe is Red, Christmas (if you don't celebrate Christmas you can make it birthday or get well or another holiday) and Layers.

I like this candy cane digi so much I had to put three of them on my card. In fact there are six of them. It's not clear in this photo but I colored six images and cut three of them out. I popped them up on dimensionals and placed them on top of the three matted images. The matted images are also popped up and then the argyle layer is popped up too. I think I got the layers done! The red and Christmas part is pretty obvious.
The dp on the card base has a blue cup in the design. I pulled that color for my mats and ribbon. The ribbon is very sheer so it doesn't show well in the photo but the blue really pops on the card. The red on the candy canes is covered in Christmas Red stickles. In my charm stash I had one candy cane and this strikes me as the perfect card for it. For the final pop I put some green rhinestones in the corners. Did you notice the little notches in the corners of the mats? That's a retired Stampin' Up corner punch.

I wish I could show you all this card in person. While it looks cute in the photo there is so much that gets lost. The stickles, the ribbon, the rhinestones and the dimensionals all make this card so much livelier in person.

Now it's time for you to show us what you can do with red, layers and Christmas. Don't forget to link your creation up on the Cooking It Up With Katie challenge blog.
