This fortnight, Christine @ Christine's Cards and Crafts chose the theme of traditional colours for our Christmas Card Club Challenge. I love to use traditional colours but it seemed my mojo was missing...
How is it that a person can have scads of patterned paper pad and yet still can not find the colours or patterns that they need? I envisioned two DP, one with a green pattern and one with a red pattern. Could not seem to find a red tone that was crisp. They were all either too burgundy, or too corally looking.
So I eventually gave up and used this red card for the mat for the tree. Not sure I like it though...
I was out of time from too much dithering about, so I made this card up anyway and thought it might work out for one of DH's pals. It seems too plain. Hopefully that means it has a masculine feel...
Handcut 5 1/2 inch square card, used as tentfold
Specialty paper - DCWV green glitter paper; snippet of heavy weight green satin card
DP - snippet from my stash
Dies - Spellbinder; Quick Cuts; Quick Cuts scalloped corners; Sue Wilson Christmas Phrase Tree
Bling - Dollar Store diamond bling
Stickles - Stardust
Once I had my card assembled, I went over the corner dies, the edges of the red mat and the edges of the Ivy DP with a generous coat of stickles.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
1. Christmas card Club - traditional colours
2. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets
