It’s time again for another SUO challenge and our first one in December!  The theme for this challenge is favorite holiday colors and I went pretty traditional with this – red and green.

To me the BEST Christmas color is Cherry Cobbler.  It is such a pretty, rich red and perfect for this time of year.

Here’s the details –

  • Cherry Cobbler – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5, add to card
  • Stamp greeting in Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green
  • Whisper White – stamp large holly leaf 8 times in Garden Green, cut out and make into a wreath on card
  • Gold Glimmer – cut out three sprigs from Pretty Pines thinlets and add to wreath
  • Cherry Cobbler – cut out small bow from Pretty Pines thinlets and add to wreath
  • Perfect White Accents – color using Cherry Cobbler darker Blend and add to wreath to finish off

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see their wonderful creations!

Happy Thursday one and all!  I have to say…if there is one set/bundle that I think is the most versatile for Christmas from the Holiday Mini it would have to be Tags and Trimmings and the Trim Your Stocking Thinlit.  I used it for my September project for Create with Connie and Mary and then AGAIN for October and these projects couldn’t be more different!

I just LOVE the holly in the set!  It is just so bold and I LOVE that!

Here’s the details…

  • Cherry Cobbler – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5
  • Be Merry dsp (diagonal stripe) – 5/8 x 3 3/4, add to panel
  • Stamp greeting using Memento Black
  • Layer onto Garden Green – 3 7/8 x 5 1/8, add to card front
  • Stamp holly using Garden Green and buttons in Cherry Cobbler, cut out, add to card front
