I am hosting this weeks challenge over at
Just Us Girls for our Colour Week.
Most of you know my favourite colour is Purple
and I love to combine it with Teal.
Since it is close to Christmas I chose Gold
as the third colour.
I love making non traditional coloured Christmas cards
(and that is what I went with)
I couldn't not make a Christmas card without pulling out
my favourite Poinsettia die from Spellbinders.
Now I have NEVER seen a poinsettia the colours I chose
but what the heck! It's different.
My card base is white.
My first layer is embossed with an old Cuttlebug
Christmas embossing folder.
Cutting a piece of DP from American Crafts with
Spellbinder Labels 20 I attached that adding
ribbon and a small strip from a Starform sticker.
My berries and holly were cut out from Kaisercraft dies
I bought while on holidays (vacation)
The Merry Christmas die is also new for me and from Lawn Fawn.
Now on to THAT poinsettia -
I covered a sheet of card stock with spritzed
Tim Holtz Mermaid Lagoon and Wilted Violet
and touches of Blue Moonstone Sparkle Medium
then cut out the pieces for the flower.
There were some white bits showing so covered that with
Tim Holtz Milled Lavender.
Added some Inka Gold around the edges
and touched up with Wink of Stella
for a little more sparkle.
Finished with some dew drops.
Sorry for the long posting. Hope you had a coffee
while reading it.
Now you need to pop over to
Our Blog to check out our November
Guest - Cecile and my Talented Team Mates creations.
Then I hope you will play with us this week.
You could be chosen as our Chic of the Week
and in the running for Guest Designer in January 2017.
PS It can be any type of card as long as it has
just those 3 colours (with neutrals accepted)
Thanks so much for dropping in
