52CCT - Colours ....

.....  Hi!  It's time for our colour challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown.  I really like the soft palette and shades of blue.  You must use at least three of the colours and I managed five!  Here's my card:

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Nordic Winter, Folk Art Christmas Additions
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Night of Navy, Marina Mist, Bashful Blue, Smoky Slate; Versamark
Dies: WMS - Folk Art Christmas
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - River Rock, Smoky Slate, Night of Navy; Silver Embossing Powder


I made the card from River Rock (discontinued) and cut a mat layer of pale grey card.  On the white panel I stamped the Scandinavian inspired patterns in all the blues and grey.  I stamped the reindeer in Versamark, embossed with silver powder, die cut and adhered it with dimensional tape.  I decided not to add a sentiment to the front of the card.  On the inside I kept it really simple with a mat layer in grey and a simple Christmas greeting.

For more inspiration with these colours check out the card from our Guest Designer, Pat and also from the rest of the team.  Looking forward to seeing your cards.  Have a good weekend!

LOVE the home-spun feel of this card. I feel like it should be a Christmas jumper... a classy one, of course! Have a great weekend, Deborah.
hugs, Asha
