This week we were set a colour challenge at the 52 CCT challenge blog.
I've taken a non traditional approach and chosen Island Indigo, Rose Red and Lucky Limeade as my colours which I think gives a contemporary feel. I made a couple of Christmas cards similar to this one last year, in blues and greens and I wanted to try it again with different colours. I've added glitter glue to the baubles and popped them up. The Merry and Bright sentiment has stars around it and I chose to cover those with jewels as that was a perfect opportunity to use some of my larger jewels. I always use the smaller size jewels in a pack first and get left with the larger ones so I was happy to use up a few on this card!
Here's the inside and the envelope. I've used the SU! 'Something for Christmas' à la carte stamp for my sentiment inside - I've committed surgery on the stamp and cut it apart so I have 3 separate sentiments. I knew I would use it more that way rather than having the 3 sentiments all together. I've got more comfortable with cutting stamps these days, I'm definitely willing to do it if I know I'll use the stamp more if it's modified!
