For the next few weeks I will be in full Christmas card making mode. How about you? I have a good start but this year more than ever I feel compelled to send lots of Christmas cheer through the mail. Receiving a card in the mail always helps to brighten my day and they magically seem to arrive when I most need that little extra boost.
I made this card for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #CCMC640. The challenge is to use the color combination, Old Olive, Poppy Parade and Misty Moonlight. Does this combination sound familiar? They are the colors found in the Trimming the Town DSP.
The foliage is Old Olive CS cut using the Christmas Layers The little flowers were punched using the Confetti Flowers Border punch in Poppy Parade. Some of the flowers are quite small so using the Take Your Pick is very helpful. I like to add a little dimension to the flowers by poking the middle of the flowers with the tip of the bone folder or you can use the ball tipped end of the Take Your Pick tool. The Poppy Parade bow was cut using the Wreath Builder dies. The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas set stamped in Misty Moonlight ink.
Want to see other ideas using this color combination? Check out what the rest of the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge team created.
I am thankful for your visit and your kind comments. Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
