Non-traditional Christmas Colors

Happy Saturday everyone!  It’s time again for another Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Saturday Blog Hop!  And what a fun theme we have for you this week…non-traditional Christmas Colors.  I actually made this card a while back for a card class but have been saving it to share with you all until today!

Isn’t Sweet Sugarplum just a perfect Christmas color?  It’s not red and green so I think it is just right for non-traditional Christmas color card.

Here’s the details…

  • Sweet Sugarplum – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Sweet Sugarplum – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, run through the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder, layer onto Whisper White 3 3/4 x 5, add to card front
  • Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer – cut out J and Y and the snowflake from Trim Your Stocking thinlet and add to card front
  • Champaign Foil – cut out heart (Trim You Stocking thinlet) and punch out four 1/4″ circles. add all to the card front

Isn’t that nice and easy?  You could easily make this in any color if you wanted a more traditional color!

Set(s): None
Paper: Whisper White, Sweet Sugarplum, Champagne Foil, Dazzling Diamond Glimmer
Ink: None
Other: Trim Your Stocking Thinlits, Large Alphabet Thinlets, 1/4″ hole punch, Winter Wonder Embossing Folder, Dimensionals
