Rudolph the RED Nosed Reindeer

This fortnight's prompt is called "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" BUT... it's not the critter, it's the COLOR we'd like to see on your holiday cards this week, Jingle Belles! In fact we'd like to see cards that are predominantly red. Does that mean you can't use any other colors? Certainly not. But your card should be, if not MOSTLY red, at least definitely, decidedly and noticeably red. Other than that you can do anything you like... including add an absolutely optional reindeer if you so desire!

Here's what we made:

Stephanie says, "This is one of my favorite shades of red ... Ranger Archival Vermillion.  When it is combined with an awesome Artistic Outpost image, you don't need much more (although I did add a few coordinating pearls on the corner & some foam tape for dimension)."

Lauren's Card

Lauren says, "I based my design around this older chipboard embellishment I found lurking in my Xmas stash. I fell in love with this week's Sketch Saturday layout, because it had a prominent circle that allowed me to accent the tag really well, while still staying firmly in the category of 'mostly red' in terms of palette." 

And now it's your turn to ransack your RED stash, whether you choose Carmine or Crimson, Cranberry or Carnelian... or even all of the above if you're feeling particularly well red! Link up here by 6pm (EST) on Wednesday, August 24th. Keyword for galleries and Flickr is JB:16:17.
