Festive Friday #26


How are you going on your Christmas card stash?  How about a colour combination to inspire you to make some more?  Nicole has challenged us to make a card using these gorgeous colours.

They aren't colours that immediately scream "Christmas", but I guess that's sometimes a good thing!  Here's my card.

I decided to focus on the browns and create a natural looking Christmas card.  Isn't this tree from Lovely As A Tree perfect as a Christmas tree?  After I stamped it I added some Dazzling Diamonds to the image using my Two-Way Glue Pen.  It adds a lovely shimmer that I hoped looked a little like snow.  Here's a closer look.

Hmm, a bit hard to capture the shimmer in a photo!

Nice and simple stamping on the inside to finish off the card.

Stamps: Lovely As A Tree, Snow Swirled, Season of Joy
Ink: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
DSP/Cardstock: Letters To Santa DSP, Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake
Other: Dazzling Diamonds, Paper Snips, Two-Way Glue Pen, Dimensionals

I hope you can play along this week at Festive Friday Challenges - it's a lovely colour combination for Christmas cards!
Bye for now,
