Today I have a couple of Christmas cards to show you that were inspired by the colors over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge...blue, cream and gold. I didn't use the bright blue because I don't have a color quite like that so I pulled out my Island Indigo since I haven't used it in a while. I also looked through all of my Christmas stamps and decided to use the retired set Joyful Christmas. I haven't used it in a while either and thought the colors and set would make a couple of nice Christmas cards.
I was going to make two of the same cards, but after making the first one I had another idea pop into my head so it's two different cards using the same colors. They were pretty simple to make other than the fussy cutting and even that didn't take too long. I stamped 3 leaves on Island Indigo with VersaMark, covered them in gold embossing powder, used my heat gun and cut them out. I did the same with the "flower" petals on Very Vanilla. I colored my pearls with a Blendabilities marker that happened to be just the color I needed (not sure what color it actually was though!). I attached the flower with dimensionals and the leaves with glue dots.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
