I don’t know about you, but I am now in Christmas mode! I am ready to get those gifts, decorations, and cards made. I will also be selling custom made Christmas cards so if you want me to design Christmas cards just for you, please contact me ASAP. And be on the lookout in my SP Store, I will be listing Christmas cards on there as well.
Well to help with making your own Christmas cards or other holiday crafts, I have come up with 35 Christmas themed color combos! (Well over 35 because I was making extra combos when I was designing the color swatches with Photoshop Elements) These are not all strictly “Christmas” color combos. I am going to say they can be any “Winter Holiday” so I am not trying to push my Christmas beliefs on anyone. I generally mail Christmas cards that say things like “Happy Holiday” and “Seasons Greetings” anyway, LOL. Nonetheless, my family celebrates Christmas, so these will be called Christmas Color Combos for easy handling for me :O)
I don’t have a set schedule for when I am going to post these and I am not yet sure if I will present them on my personal blog, the SP COlor Combos blog, or both. . . so we shall see how it goes from here!
Here is the card I designed using this combo:
I just adore the big giant bow! Actually, this isn’t even a real bow, it is a faux bow! HE HE, I love tricking ya like that. I think this will be in an upcoming Stampin’ With Sami Workshop because it is awesome!!!
- Stampin’ UP Serene Snowflakes Stamp set -I stamped the giant snowflake soft suede because I feared the Chocolate Chip would be too dark against the Whisper White.
- On the Bordering Blue cardstock, I used VersaMark to stamp a smaller snowflake from the same stamp set.
- I matted the Bordering Blue cardstock onto Kraft cardstock
- Ribbon is 1inch Chocolate Chip Double Stitched Grosgrain ribbon I will be offering a Christmas Ribbon Share in the next few weeks and this will be included, be on the lookout for future announcements.
- Circle was cut out using the Cricut Accent Essentials cartridge -I cut it out and then used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to position the snowflake in the center.
- TIP: when positioning something onto a smaller piece of cardstock, tape your piece of cardstock to a scrap piece of paper to hold it securely in place.
