For the third World Cardmaking Day challenge at StampTV, we are to make a Christmas card with non-traditional colors. I am also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - Anything Goes.
I decided to use yellow and purple for my Christmas card. I wasn't sure how it would turn out, but once I finished it, I think it came out okay.
I stamped the trees and stars on the yellow cardstock. I die cut the ornament and the top of the ornament, sponged the edge of the ornament and heat embossed the top. I stamped the sentiment, tied a piece of ribbon onto the top of the ornament and attached a bow with a mini Glue Dot. I matted the background and added a strip of cardstock in the middle. I attached the ornament with some foam squares, taped the ribbon to the back of the matted background and adhered it to a white card base.
Here are the supplies I used:
Gina K. Designs: Lemon Drop and Wild Lilac cardstock
Wild Lilac ink
Sentimental Holiday stamp set
Impression Obsession dies
Recollections Gold Tinsel embossing powder
mini Glue Dot
foam squares, ribbon
