Hello! It’s Thursday and you know that means it is time for a Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge. This week’s color challenge is completely up to us! What is our FAVORITE Christmas Color Combination? I could have gone with the traditional red and greens…we have MANY shades to use. But my holiday cards always have snowflakes or snowmen on them and I tend to choose blues for my cards.
Isn’t this a pretty color combination? Misty Moonlight, Fresh Freesia and Coastal Cabana has become this year’s favorite!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Fresh Freesia cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- A 2-1/2 x 5-1/4 piece of In Color 6×6 DSP was added to the right side.
- The 3 x 5-1/4 piece of Basic White cardstock was cut with the Basic Border curved Die and added to the left side overlapping the DSP.
- The snowflakes were cut with the Stitched Snowflakes Dies from Misty Moonlight, Fresh Freesia and Coastal Cabana and adhered with Monoadhesive Glue along the curve.
- Merry Everything greeting was stamped with Coastal Cabana Ink on 3/4 x 3-3/4 strip of Basic White cardstock and the left side angled.
- A 1/2 x 3-1/4 strip of Coastal Cabana cardstock was added under the greeting strip, then both added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Some Playing with Patterns Resin Dots were added to the center of the snowflakes and to the background!
LOVE those colors for winter! Go check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did with their favorite Christmas color combination over on Create with Connie and Mary!
