52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – Colours

CCT - Design For Badge

Welcome to our mid-month challenge. For this challenge, we are asking you to design a Christmas card using cream, aqua and brown. I started my card by blending my background strip using distress inks – peacock feathers and vintage photo. Once that was done I stamped various snowflakes for my stash in the same ink. I trimmed to strip to fit a A2 cream coloured card. Next I cut 4 thin strips of aqua and brown card stock and edged the snowflake strip. I die cut snowflakes using dies from Lawn Fawn and Paper Smooches in cream, aqua, and brown card stock. The sentiment is from Papertry Ink.


I hope you will join us! Remember it is never too early to start on your Christmas card stash.

    Wonderful way to use the colours. The blended strip is very unusual, I love all the snowflakes on it and the textured card behind. x
