Saturday Slot

A card for the last of this month's challenges at CAS Colours & Sketches is my share today. 

It had to be another Christmas card, maybe in December I'll stop! So I chose two of my favourite colours to combine for Christmas - aqua and red. I always think they look so fresh against a white background.

I started by stamping the long diagonal lines and intended to stamp a greeting in place of the two shorter lines. But as I was searching through my stamps I came across this die cut that I'd stored away for future use and really liked the contrast of the loopy font with the linear look of the lines.

I finished off with fairly random stamping of red flower heads and some berries in the centre of each pine needle.

Stamps: Clearly Besotted, Holiday Sentiments; Uniko Studio, Background Builders Vines
Inks: SU, pool party, cherry cobbler
Die: Clearly Besotted, Merry Christmas

So pleased you dropped by today, thank you for your time.

  2. Great card, I really love aqua and red together too.
