Non-Traditional Christmas


Another weekend is quickly gone. We're going to turn around and it will be Christmas. Today, the CAS297 challenge on Splitcoaststampers is to make a Christmas card using a non-traditionl image or non-traditional colors. This was certainly an easy and quick card to make, just cutting a couple of die cuts and adding some enamel dots. I stamped a sentiment and it was all finished. 

I found the idea for this design here on Pinterest. Isn't that a beautiful card?

I'm entering my card into these challenges:

Paper-PTI white cardstock, Bazzill Candy Necklace cardstock, unknown purple glitter paper

Beautiful! I love non traditional colors on holiday cards - this is a such a lovely contrasting color and unique! You're doing so good with the challenges! ♥

I can see why you'd want to create a card based on one of Kim's amazing designs! Both cards are so pretty - similar and yet so different! I love the sharp angle of your diecut and those enamel dots are such a great finishing touch!

I can't believe I wasn't following you on Pinterest - how did that happen? I am now! Your card is so great - love the design and the colors - just as fun as the one you pinned. Christmas is just around the corner and so is the Iron Bowl. That is going to be a very interesting game. Hugz!!!

BTW - you won my birthday blog candy and I will get it in the mail this weekend.

I see I've gotten very far behind here at your blog, with some very gorgeous cards. I'll start with this bold beauty. Love the blocks of color (lavender and teal - great color combo BTW) and the crisp white with the graphic shapes...a big WOW! Looks very CAS but packs a big impact! TFS & Hugs
