Deck the halls

At first glance I don’t think this cards looks all that Christmassy.  Hmm Christmassy made it through spell check! 


When I was making this card I was a bit unsure where it was going.  You see I was working on Christmas cards and ran out of the cardstock I was using with the patterned paper I had.  I had a little bit left so went searching for another matching cardstock and came up with this turquoise-aqua paper.  It matched but was not a color that said Christmas to me.

The cardstock in person is a bit more aqua than I could get the picture to show.  I find aqua is a hard color for me to get a true to lift color when I’m taking pictures.  I tried may different locations and just can’t seem to find the perfect spot.


Who would have thought that a card could be both bright and muted?

I think the brown distressing toned down the bright cardstock and helped make this card of of my favorites.  I’m like that sometimes, the stranger the color combination, the more I like it.

Last year I made a few pink Christmas cards.  What is your most unusual color you’ve used for your holiday cards?

  1. It looks like a modern....with a twist of vintage! I like it! I have a turquoise trimmed snowman. He'll go into my craft studio which is turquoise.

    On another note....saying a prayer for all.


I love to read your comments.
