    Cherry CObbler isn’t the perfect Christmas red!

  663. Stephanie Mansdoerfer

    Oops!!!! Meant to say Cherry Cobbler IS the perfect Christmas Red!

  664. Sandy redstampinsam Meyers

    I’m a traditionalist when it comes to Christmas, so I’m sure I will most likely reach for Real Red and a variety of greens, gold, silver, and white to compliment the red. But they won’t be boring at all because Stampin Up has added such a collection of matte, shiney, glitter, vellum, light and heavy weight papers. Not to mention all the doilies and embellishments. I might try a few of the shades of red, but I highly doubt you will find any pink, purple or turquoise on my stamping table!

  665. Cherry cobbler works great for me.

  666. That’s easy–cherry cobbler! Love that color all year round but especially at Christmas!

  667. Wow! What a response! I’m part of the large CHERRY COBBLER group–to me it truly says Christmas more than any other color.

  668. I initially thought Cherry Cobbler but then I realized that you asked Holiday color. Since we aren’t being specific as to which Holiday I have to say Black since I use it on so many of my Holiday cards.

  669. real red ink is beautiful

  670. Real Red is my favorite. I love your card. Thanks for chance to win the amazing blog candy.

  677. Susan Brandano
