JAI 181 - Just add a colour combo

Hello there,
well spring has sprung here - its sheer delight to feel the warmth of the sun and smell the delicious flowery scents in the air. So it might seem rather incongruous to present you with a Christmas card this week but time is ticking by folks - lol! - time to get that Christmas card production into full gear ;) Of course I used the challenge we have for you this week at Just Add Ink - a colour challeng,e for my card. It makes for rather striking trendy Christmas colours! 
But in all honestly this was my second go round. But I did like how this turned out.

More new Christmas goodies to play with here. I used the new Stylish Stripes folder and DSP pattern stacks to play with diagonal patterns. I did try one little trick with my embossing folder. First I embossed one half of the front white mat and then flipping the folder over so the stripes meet in the middle and embossed the other side. Despite a rather tricky start with the colour combo this second go just came together - and I think I'll play with it  some more! Do check out the rest of the DT for fabulous colour inspiration. Hope you can join us!

  1. Kim this is a lovely Christmas card and I especially like how you adjusted the stamped greeting on the inside of your card to coordinate with the front panel. Beautiful.

  2. I love this Kim! A super way to use such bold DSP and genius idea with the EF! :)
