I'm always looking for something different to try with my Christmas cards but the very bright pink Christmas themed paper I’d recently been given was causing me trouble – couldn’t get an idea going.
When I saw this weeks colours at The Play Date Cafe it was the perfect opportunity to try them again. I really love this colour combination now I’ve used it but wouldn’t have thought to put them together myself - I need to get a bit braver with colours I think as I tend to play it safe!
I ended up not using much of the paper and I’m not sure how Christmassy the card is but I quite like it. The colours on the base card are distress stains – I started this card as something else (Less Is More challenge ) but realised it wouldn’t work as a one layer card as it was textured and I wouldn’t get a very clear stamp but as the colours matched I’ve put it too good use here anyway.
I embossed the Winter Tree stamp in detail white and added some gems, then just layered up the papers, ribbon and stars.
I’m also sharing this here -
CAS-ual Friday – Embossing (hope it’s CAS enough, never sure at what point a card stops being CAS)
