Cozy Christmas Card

What a cozy color combo challenge at 
kraft, black and red; no other colors. 

I used Kraft, Cherry Cobbler and Black card stocks.
Black ink for the stamp. 
I debated on whether or not
I should sponge ink along the edges of the kraft card base. 
I decided to go for it ;) 

The black strip was run through a Swiss Dots embossing folder.

 I tore the bottom edge off of the Cherry Cobbler strip. 
It was then run through a Square Lattice embossing folder.
I originally was not going to emboss that piece,
 then decided to after the edge was torn off.

I punched a heart from Cherry Cobbler and stamped just the word "heart"
on it, attaching it to the card front with a dimensional.

The plaid ribbon started as black and white.
I ran it across a light brown ink pad
 to make the white more of a kraft color. 

Thanks for looking :)
