I have a fun Christmas card for you today. I'm normally a more traditional color kind of Christmas girl, but I went a little outside my zone on this card and love how it came out.
This card was actually a 2 nighter. I stamped and cut out the Holly Jingle Bells and then spent the rest of the evening trying out different color combos on scrap. I had settled on more traditional colors and figured I'd color it and finish my card the next night. However, on the second night when I sat down I just wasn't "feeling it" as I was trying to find the right color paper to go with my colored sample. But the bright pink started calling my name :)
Once I had my colors the rest went pretty fast. I cut the 4 squares and then framed the pink and green layers with dots from a silver sharpie. The Friends Everyday Christmas Greeting sentiment was stamped in silver and seeing it looked a bit stark I added the silver dot frame to that as well. You can't see it in the photo, but I thought the plain folded card was a little plain too, so in keeping with my dot theme, I used my swiss dots embossing folder.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
