I hope you all had an absolutely fabulous weekend!
I have been thinking about getting a start on my Christmas Cards for some time now and have been looking at various Christmas Blog Challenges but have been having a hard time getting into the mindset of going for it. I want winter to be over so the thought of creating a Christmas Card was kind of scary... But today, I decided to go for it, even though I didn't use a Christmas Challenge Blog to do it! lol
I decided to use the colour theme from Colour Me...! this week. I thought Rich Razzleberry and Pool Party would make for a very non-traditional colour combination for a Christmas card.
I also drew inspiration from this week's Freshly Made Sketches fun sketch.
And here is my card:
At first, for the circles, I had thought about stamping and punching out particular shapes but then I decided to stamp a bunch of snowflakes in Coastal Cabana (I did not have Pool Party ink so that was as close as I could get and it matches really well) and Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White card stock. This created my own DSP, if you will. I then took my 1" Circle Punch and randomly punched out circles from the generated DSP. It turned out much better than my first attempt and created a much more fun look on the card.
