Wow, a lot going on today! I have two cards today, both Christmas cards:) The first card will be entered into the Challenge over at Always Playing With Paper, Merry Monday #77. They have a color challenge this week that at first, I hated it! But then it kind of grew on me and I embraced the challenge and actually made two with the chosen colors! What are those colors, you must be wondering…….Red, Pink, Dark Green, Light Green and White. I was okay with all the colors, except the Pink. Then I found some perfect papers! The papers are by Sassy Designs and the set is called Fruitcake, which is pretty much how I felt about the colors. lol
I don’t think I’m thrilled with these colors together, but you have to check out the other cards! The cards submitted are pretty great! 🙂 So check out Merry Monday and stop by every week for a new challenge:)
Now for my card:
You can click on my cards to see them larger. You may want to if you want to see the snowflake detail on the pink paper. I used VersaMark and stamped some snowflakes from the Stampin’ Up! set, Serene Snowflakes (retired). I used Stampin’ Up! Pretty In Pink as the background color. Then I layered the Fruitcake dots. I used SU Real Red and embossed it with Stampin’ Up! Petals a Plenty folder. I used a retired SU snowflake punch, with a little snowflake brad to keep it in place. Finally, I added my cute Westie image from Fred She Said called, Winter Westie. Here’s the set info:
-includes BOTH the DIGI and Pre-Coloured versions.
-DIGI ( uncoloured ) is in JPG, PNG + printable sheet. Digi also includes an alternate Wesite WITHOUT a scarf.
-Pre-coloured are in JPG and include 2 versions of scarf + printable SHEET
*Pre-Coloured Westies ( with scarf ) are available in PNG by email request anytime after purchase.
I asked for the PNG version that I requested after purchase, that has no blue background. I mounted it on SU Garden Green. Everything is mounted low profile with just added cardstock layers. Both of my cards will be going to Operation Write Home and your cards can’t be too thick. Currently they have at least two challenges going on, be sure to check them out! 🙂
My second card will be going into the Doodle Pantry Challenge #39. Their challenge starts the first of every month, and runs for the entire month, so you have lots of time to join in the fun! 🙂 Here’s my card:
How is that for a Pink Christmas card? I got this idea from Pat Dadisman, who submitted it over at Doodle Pantry, you can see her card here, as well as the digital image, Fancy Flamingo, by Doodle Pantry. I also used DP Santa Accessories COLOR plus for the hat. The following are the Stampin’ Up! products I used: Garden Green cardstock, stamp from the Delightful Decorations (retired) set, and the matching punch (retired). I stamped the ornament with Real Red.
The colorful paper comes from Sassy Designs and is part of the Fruitcake set. This card will also be going in the box for Operation Write Home. The joy ornament is popped up with extra cardstock to keep a low profile:)
Ok, I think that’s it for now. I have to get busy and make lots more cards!!
Thanks for stopping by today, I’m always happy to have you! 🙂 I hope you can stop by again:)
