Since putting up my last post I have made another card, this time with more traditional colours! I was just flicking through my Google Reader and found Merry Monday challenge, and was immediately inspired to get back to traditional colours for Christmas!
I knew I wanted to use the new Framelits as my main shape instead of the circle, so I grabbed my Christmas DSP and knew immediately I wanted to use the Santa image with a background of the merry phrases. I chose Cherry Cobbler and Lucky Limeade as the main Christmassy colours and am really happy with how quickly I produced this card and how much I like it.
I learned two things about my style while making this card which I will share with you. Firstly I tend not to use sentiments on a card, and secondly I forget to reach for my textured embossing folders. Once this card was finished I looked at it and that was when I thought the Lucky Limeade layer would have looked great with either polka dots or vintage wallpaper embossing - Doh, going to have to keep that in mind for next time.
