CR84FN67 - Merry Christmas ....

.... Wow, time has gone by so quickly this week, here's my third card with our fabulous CR84FN67 colours of plum, gold and tan.


Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Compliements of the Season II; Creative Expressions - Holly
Inks: Distress - Antique Linen, Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord; Stampin' Up! - Perfect Plum, Crumb Cake
Spellbinders: Lotus Pendant (S4-269)
Accessories:  Kanban Card; Gold foiled card from stash

Going through my Kanban stash, I found this pretty Christmas tree with baubles and parcels in various shades of plum and purple.  I mounted the cut image onto a gold doily - giving the impression of a multi-point star!  I created the background by shading with distress inks leaving a softer colour towards the centre of the card.  I stamped the holly branches in Crumb Cake to give a subtle pattern and finished off with a simple sentiment.  I haven't done the inside yet!

I was having so much fun with these colours that I made another card!


Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Compliements of the Season II, Yonder Star
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Crumb Cake, Perfect Plum
Accessories:  Kanban Card; SU Card - Crumb Cake

I had some of this lovely gold foiled holly paper left from my card last week so decided to use it up.  I cut a mat in Crumb Cake and adhered the holly paper.  In my Kanban stash, I found this pretty decoupage image - the colours were perfect for the challenge and made another Christmas card for my collection.  The greeting was part of the kit.

As there was no stamping at all on the front of the card, I decided to decorate the inside.  I used my new Waltzingmouse set, Yonder Star - it is simply so beautiful.  I stamped the outline star in Crumb Cake and then stamped this fun sentiment - love the font!  This is such a pretty clean and simple design that I'm going to use it on a set of cards.

Both are very different interpretations of the colour scheme. The first is my favourite with the way you have stamped the background for it & that pointed star mounting works a real treat.
