Today I wanted to create a Christmas card that used a non-traditional colour scheme and had a more modern feel. I chose a colour scheme of Pool Party, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla and paired them up with the Twinkle Trees Stamp Set.
I love how this turned out and can see myself making a Mint Macaron and Sweet Sugarplum version. The greeting which I think works really well on this card comes from the Star of Light stamp set. I added a little ribbon to the edge but think the design could work just as well without.
Today I’m featuring a set of four notecards I have made based on the four seasons which can be made so easily with the Thoughtful Branches stamp set and Beautiful Branches thinlits. Here is a picure of all four cards together:
As you can see they all use the tree outline die as a basis for the tree in Soft Suede cardstock and then for Spring, Summer and Autumn I have just stamped a different coloured tree top depending on the season.
For the Spring leaves I used a base of Pink Pirouette ink and then over stamped in Blushing Bride, the grass is Emerald Envy and the birds have been stamped in Early Expresso.
For the Summer tree the leaves were stamped in Mint Macaron and then over stamped in Emerald Envy and the apple are of course…Cherry Cobbler.
For the Autumn card, which I think is my favourite the base leaves were stamped with Delightful Dijon and then a layer of Cajun Craze. The birds were stamped again with Cherry Cobbler.
The Winter card is probably one of the easiest cards I’ve ever made but I still like the simplicity of it. It’s simply the Soft Suede die cut placed on the stamped background of Soft Suede.
I thought about adding a greeting to these cards but I decided o leave them super simple, what do you think?
That’s all for today,
