I love the combination of white and dark red/maroon. To me it is an elegant combination and that was what I was trying to accomplish with this card. I die cut the three ornaments and added silver embroidery thread to make the ornaments look like they are hanging. I dry embossed the front white panels and added a computer generated sentiment. On my computer screen the sentiment looks like it was matted on a brighter red cardstock, but it is really the same cardstock as the card base.
