Ho, Ho, Ho to You
Hello there! Thanks for joining me today, here is my goddess card for the Stampin' Royalty challenge blog. The challenge this week is a color challenge using Gumball Green, Real Red, and Whisper White, or very similar colors. Grab your provisions and create anything using these colors, and link it up.
This is a version of my own Christmas cards that I am sending out this year. I just made one card in these colors to fit the challenge this week. I grabbed my polka dot parade DSP, and embossed a piece of gumball green core'dinations with the chevron embossing folder.
A little clear heat embossing on my gumball green Ho, Ho, Ho gives a little shine.
I made my own chalkboard art with A Banner Christmas stamp set, I added the star and Noel stamps as well. I loved all of the images and thought they would work well together as "art". How did I do it perfectly every time? Take a look:
It was pretty easy to change, remove, and straighten this way. I stamped my whisper white craft ink on basic black card stock for that great chalkboard look. Would you like to see my actual Christmas cards? If you said yes, have a look,
Pretty much the same, except I used the season of style DSP, along with cherry cobbler and old olive colors and accessories. I really tried to keep them simple this year, both for ease of making a ton of them as well as to be able to mail them easily.
Here is the inside, courtesy of MDS, I love how with three stamps and a text box you have a very professional looking card.
So, I have to ask, which version do you prefer? The bright gumball green and real red or the elegant cherry cobbler and old olive? I have to say for me, it is a toss up, but I am leaning toward the elegant cherry cobbler only because the DSP has more designs. Leave me a comment on your favorite, I love to read them all.
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!
