Holiday Card Week – Day 4 (BLOG CANDY!)
Are you tired of red and green yet? Let's take a break today and enjoy some inspirational holiday cards that use different color schemes. As a designer it's a challenge to use different materials, unexpected colors, fabrics and papers in your work. Jennifer Holmes took that challenge by creating a holiday card using cardboard and felt ribbon in this "Merry Christmas" ornament card. She's stamped both "Merry Christmas" and the holly image from PSA North Pole Peel & Stick stamps. Her use of card board and ribbon to create the ornament is very inventive!
Look how beautiful this turned out.
Melyssa Connolly was feeling jolly without green and red with this joy, peace and love card. She's stamped joy, peace and love from PSA Tree-O Peel & Stick, and the blue snowflake from PSA Fancy Flakes. I love her use of materials in this card, including the cork. It's amazing she has taken the time to sew the blue cross-hatched pattern paper onto the beige cardstock base. Sewing your cards IS one extra step but produces really beautiful results.
Melyssa Connolly also created this adorable "let it snow" card using a limited color palate of beige, white and an accent of red. She stamped various snowflakes from PSA Fancy Flakes using her acrylic block and beige ink. By stamping with a slightly darker shade of ink onto similar color paper, Melyssa was able to achieve a subtle, background effect. She's made the snowflake adorned with a red gem the star in the bottom of the card.
I hope you have enjoyed these alternative color schemes today!
