A Non-Traditional Coloured Christmas Card


The above seasonal temperatures have disappeared!....and the cold wind makes it even colder. Brrrrr. I hate winter!

Today’s card is a Christmas card in non-traditional colours…..something I really like to do.

This card meets the requirements for this challenge:


and this challenge:



I was digging through the stash…yes it’s that deep….or it seems so some days…and found that aqua plain paper…but not a lot of it. So I searched through my patterned paper and found a piece that matched. A simple diagonal cut formed a perfect card size front. The fancy strip down the seam was also from the stash and just happened match! The ornament is a Stampin’ Up die cut out of a lighter aqua cardstock with glitter paper behind it. The sentiment was die cut with the Tim Holtz Christmas sentiment die set. They were die cut twice; once out of the darker and lighter aqua cardstock and the lighter one was glued to the darker one; but off-set so it made a shadow which really helped it stand out.



That’s all for a cold and windy Wednesday, December 6, 2017.

Cheers

Violet
