52CCT - Colours ...

.... Hi! Time is marching on and I still need to make lots more Christmas cards. This week's challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - 52CCT45-16 has helped a lot! Gill has picked super colours for us to play with - LIME GREEN AND REAL RED - I've had a ball!! I ended up with a set of six co-ordinating cards. There are a few sneak peeks in here too - Bev from Uniko has some new stamps coming out soon. Here are my cards:

Stamps: Uniko - Christmas Pop, Rustic Wreath, Most Wonderful, Simply Said Christmas, Background Builders Vines Winter Additions, Pure Floral Poinsettia
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Lucky Limeade, Real Red, Whisper White; Versafine - Onyx Black; Versamark; Delicata - Shimmery Silver
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card & DP - Lucky Limeade, Real Red; Silver & White Embossing Powders; Wink of Stella - Clear, Green, Gold


I love this colour combination as you can probably guess! I used the sketch from this week's CAS Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#199 for the layout on all the cards, although not all the cards are CAS. I made card bases in white, red and lime and then played with design papers and white card for all the toppers. I've used embossing on some, added sparkle with Wink of Stella to others and gone for fairly clean and simple on a couple more. I've added flowers on a couple of the cards and am submitting them to Jingle Belles - JB:16:23 where they want to see Christmas flowers. And I'm also submitting the Christmas tree cards to the current challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz - C4G#145. I kept the inside of the cards very simple. I simply stamped a sentiment and some silver snowflakes on the white panels. I co-ordinated the colour of the word joy to the main colour of the card.

You did a super job combining all the challenges, Deborah! Awesome job showing how the sketch can be kept CAS or dressed up a bit more. It's fun for me to be here as your 52CCT teammate and also to thank you for joining in the sketch challenge at CC&S! :)

You've been very busy again. The colours do sing together. I especially like the offset wreath (it's so simple) and the poinsettia on green. I wish I could remember all the ideas I see!
