'Tis the Season Blog Challenge #4

Happy Thursday readers! Its time for another challenge over at 'Tis the Season Christmas Card Blog Challenge!  This week we have a great color combo to get your holiday juices flowing!


Isn't it great! It reminds me of old time Christmas, something you would see at an antique shop or a country Christmas theme!  These non traditional colors are perfect since I tend to get stuck in the red, green, and white/vanilla colors for my Christmas cards.


I wanted to use the new Festive Flurry stamp set and coordinating framelits that I got.  I love them even more now that I have the magnetic platform for my Big Shot to keep them in place and to make sure I have perfect cuts every time. 

For my card, I used sliver glimmer paper that I sponged with Cherry Cobbler ink to give it some dimension.  Now I could have used our red glimmer paper, but I wanted the silver to shine through.  I stamped the two snowflakes with Versa Mark ink to give them a subtle look but also the tone on tone too.  Using the same color ink on the same color cardstock can be too intense sometimes, Versa Mark makes it more soft.  I used twine on the clear button to tie in our option embellishment this challenge and coordinates great with the old time feel.

I hope you are able to play along with us and make sure to visit our blog at Tis The Season Christmas Card Challenge!
