Vintage and pink

 Today I made a Christmas card in the old style. The Color Dare is shades of pink plus one color. I chose green as my second color for a pastel Christmas look. I used the sketch from Atlantic Hearts which goes perfectly with the border challenge at Heart 2 Heart.

I used Father Christmas and colored with watercolor pencils. The paper is from Yuletide Carol. I made the holly berries pink by adding glitter gems. Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll see you next week!

Materials used:
Cardstock: Champagne, Colonial White, Baby Pink
Paper Pack: Yuletide Carol
Stamps: Father Christmas
Ink: Chocolate 
Other: glitter gems, watercolor pencils

 This is my weekly Christmas card. I am participating in these three challenges: the sketch is from 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, the colors are from Color My Heart’s Diagonal on the tic tac toe - Candy Apple, Lagoon, and Bluebird. The challenge at Paperminutes was Snowmen, but I think I missed the deadline for that one. Oops.

For the diagonal section of the sketch, I embossed my White Daisy panel with a snowflake embossing folder. For the stripes I added 2 Lagoon strips, and then layered them with Lagoon ribbon. The snowman was stamped with Bluebird and the little snowflakes are Lagoon. Then I added a red metal flower from the Brushed assortment for the Candy Apple.


Materials used:

Cardstock: Bluebird, White Daisy, Lagoon

Stamps: Winter Joy

Ink: Bluebird, Lagoon

Other: Brushed Assortment, Lagoon Ribbon, embossing folder from Provo Craft

Christmas Love

 Last night I made this card which fits into several challenges, and I think it turned out so pretty for how many challenges I did! Here is the list:

52 Christmas Card Throwdown -metallic papers

Atlantic Hearts -sketch

Double Trouble -recipe: 3 embellishments, 2 pattern papers, 1 stamped image

Cupcake Inspirations -colors: Gold, Maroon, and Teal

Heart 2 Heart - All You Need is Love

For my 2 pattern papers I used a metallic stripe from Happy Times and a teal pattern from Florence. The maroon is some Vineyard Berry I had a scrap of, and I stamped the Scandinavian heart in Vineyard Berry. My son helped me with the 3 embellishments. He wanted 1 bow, 2 hearts, and 3 red gems. 

Thanks for coming by to see my Christmas card this week! Come back next week and we’ll see what I come up with!
