Non-Traditional Christmas

Hi everyone – how has your week started?  Things are busy, busy, busy here in Sydney and it has been cold and rainy today :(


But then again it is Winter and speaking of Winter makes you think of Christmas right?!


Well it should because we have another Christmas card challenge at Holly Jolly and it is hosted by Julie and she has chosen a “Non-Traditional Christmas” challenge.


For my non-traditional colours I have been inspired by the latest challenge at Winter Wonderland Challenge and the colours are to use Pink and/or Purple PLUS Aqua and/or Green.


I have used Perfect Plum, Tempting Turquoise and Pretty in Pink.


I stamped some snowflakes from the Snow Swirled stamp set on the base card and the piece of Tempting Turquoise cardstock.


I used some scrap paper and stamped some snowflakes one in Perfect Plum and one in Tempting Turquoise.  Cut them both out and layered them together with dimensionals.


I coloured the sponsor’s image called Emma the Hugger Snowman in with the Aqua Brush and with Pretty in Pink, Perfect Plum and Tempting Turquoise ink pads.  I also used a touch of Blushing Bride for the face, Soft Suede for her hair and the Snowman’s nose.


I added some lace from my stash and there is always room for ‘bling’!


Here is my card…






Stamp set: Snow Swirled, Fred She Said Image.

Card: Perfect Plum, Tempting Turquoise, Copic Cardstock 
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Perfect Plum, Tempting Turquoise, Soft Suede, Blushing Bride

Accessories:  Lace (Non-SU), Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive



It is making me chilly just looking this card but it is still cute!
