Bonnie Klass, host of this week’s theme for Merry Mondays Challenge, has chosen Red, Green and White. Seems easy, right? Not. With so many rich reds and beautiful greens to choose from, I had a hard time narrowing down the field. In the end, I landed on the gorgeous combination of Real Red, Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White – I love this pairing. Here’s my card:
- Layering. I love a clean card with lots of layers. It’s a challenge – how many layers can I add before it starts to look busy? 🙂 I especially love when the layers are bordered with a singular color – in this case, white frames each of the panels, and the center piece is framed with a bold piece of Real Red cardstock.

- Start Somewhere. While creating this card, I must have spent a total of two hours hemming and hawing over what to make. Red, Green and White sounds like a super-easy combination, but where to start? Once I set-in on my colors (Real Red, Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White), I settled in on this beautiful paper from All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper. I built the layers card around that paper – you have to start somewhere. That paper is my somewhere for this project.
- Green and Red. There are so many combinations of green and red – more greens in the current Stampin’ Up! family of colors than reds, but here are some of the options (pairing Real Red, Cherry Cobbler and Rose Red to most of our current greens):
Stamp Sets: Christmas Bliss Papers: Real Red, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper Accessories: White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Tree punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals
