When making Christmas cards I'm generally quite traditional and lean towards using red, green or blue. However, I really like yellow and grey together so I decided to use it on a Christmas card to see if it would work. I quite like how it turned out.
The stamp is Tatty's Christmas Tree from the Creative Expressions Tatty Button range. I stamped it in Memento London Fog. I just coloured in the stars on the tree with the Sunflower Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Ink. I cut the image out using the largest of the Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles dies. I cut a faux nestie out using pale lemon card.
I stamped the sentiment from the Tatty Button Text 2 set in Memento London Fog and cut it out using a Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Three die and again made a faux nestie out of pale lemon card.
I cut a panel of grey card and embossed it using the Couture Creations Drink Me embossing folder. The backing paper is from Polka Doodles Sundae of Seasons CD.
I joined the embossed grey card and the yellow polka dot paper together with a piece of Nickle Mist Vintage Ribbon. I tied a messy bow using 2 lengths of the ribbon and added a Creative Expressions wooden button with some yellow Baker's Twine tied through it.
I cut 2 flourishes from the Tim Holtz Alterations Die Elegant Flourishes - one in pale lemon and one in grey and glued them in place with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue as shown.
I'm entering this card in to the following challenges -
