This week's challenge on SBS#25 was to make a Christmas card without using red or green! How is this possible? Well, I did it.
The base of this card is Bashful Blue which I stamped randomly using the tiny snowflake from Short and Sweet in Versamark ink.
The main images are from Hung Up on the Holidays stamped on Whisper White. I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the hangers and then extended them using a Stampin' Write Marker. The inks colours are Close to Cocoa and Brocade Blue. I had to add some sparkle (it is a Christmas card after all) so I used my 2-way Glue Pen and Dazzling Daimonds on the patterns on the baubles and the gingerbread man's buttons. This panel was mounted on Close to Cocoa and then adhered in the top left-hand corner of the card base.
The sentiment is from Short and Sweet, stamped in Close to Cocoa on Whisper White and punched with the small oval. I was going to mount it on a Close to Cocoa large oval but that didn't look right so I chose to use the oval frame from the Syled Silver Hodgepodge. The ribbon is Bashful Blue striped grosgrain.
I really like this card - the soft colours really appeal to me at the moment.
