I know some of you live in states where the heat is just scorching & miserably hot so maybe looking at some Christmas themed cards will help give you a "virtual" break from the heat and bring on some cool thoughts : )
The challenge is to create a card with a sentiment for Christmas/Season'
Here's my take on this week's challenge......
I wanted to mix it up a bit and not use the traditional red/green colors. So I paired up some deep red CS with some blues & browns for this card & really like how they look together.
For my border punch I used the Martha Stewart large snowflake. I really like the detail on this punch & how it turned out on the TH distress CS.
I used a Sizzix snowflake embossing folder on the same CS..topped it off with a sentiment from K & Company's Tidings of Comfort & Joy collection & some yummy Maraschino twine from The Twinery.
Some cute felt poinsettias topped with more twine in Denim.
Really love how this card turned out...mostly due to the CS color combos I selected. I'll be making more holiday cards & projects using these colors for sure!!
