Good Afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop with the Latte Girls. This week’s theme is Traditional Christmas Colours …
With Christmas less than 11 weeks away it is probably time to start pumping out some Christmas Cards. Some love to get cards using new and non Traditional colours but I also have many friends and family who love the Traditional Christmas themes and colours.
Here’s my card for today …
I’ve gone with the Traditional Christmas Colours of Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Gold. The All is Bright Designer Series Paper was perfect for this card – it even has they shiny Christmas Lights in the paper!
I embossed my sentiment in Gold Embossing Powder – it’s Christmas so it needs to be special right?
As I was layering my Spruce Banner on the card I thought it might look nice with the Subtle Embossing Folder. I was right – but how cool does it look with a bit of sanding on that banner to give it more texture?
The layout for this card was inspired by the challenge over at the Fab Friday Challenge Blog …
It was a fun and easy card to do. I loved stepping it up with the sanded banner, glimmer paper branches and the Gold Embossed Sentiment. Click on the sketch above and see the other wonderful creations.
