I love non-traditional colors for Christmas – while green and red are all around us during the Holidays, blues can be gorgeous, metallic shades can really shine and a black-and-white card can be stunning. For my local club this past week, we showcased Carols of Christmas bundle in Rose Red and Wild Wasabi for a gorgeous card. Here’s one of the projects we made:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Carols of Christmas. I spent the first six days of this month announcing that the Carols of Christmas bundle is not available – a terrible typo for someone who really wants to sell a lot of this bundle. 🙂 The bundle is, in fact, now available. What a gorgeous collection of stamps and dies – it’s not until you really study the stamps and dies that you see all of the possibilities. I’ve showcased this set a few times on my blog, but this is the first time I’m showing these really fun ornaments! Here’s a look at this bundle:
- It’s the Little Things. Sometimes the little things make a really big difference. After the Archival Basic Black ink dried on this sentiment, I used a Rose Red Stampin’ Write Marker to color in the long, slender accents on the letters in this gorgeous stamp. That little accent made me so happy and made a big difference on the overall look of the card. Here’s a closer look: Speaking of little things…the new Mini Dimensionals work perfectly with these little ornaments. YAY!
- Softer Christmas Colors. I love the large panels of white on this card and how all that white is beautifully framed with Rose Red and Wild Wasabi. If you want a card that really stands out on the mantel at your friend’s house this Holiday Season, consider using these softer colors. You’re welcome for the suggestion. 🙂
