Hi everyone, hope your week is going well so far. I'm up on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog today with yet another card for my Christmas stash!!
After celebrating the new CFS Holiday Release last week, I'm still in the Christmas spirit. I came across this colour combo on the Simon Says Stamp Blog with Shari Carroll:
I couldn't get the navy/pink combo out of my mind (along with silver and white) and couldn't wait to try it with some snowflake dies:
I absolutely love navy but I never think to use it on my cards enough. Its a nice change from black and goes with so many other colours.
I started off by die-cutting the largest circle from the 'Ornament Tag Fri-dies' from some navy paint chips. I also die-cut the same circle from white foam and glued to the back.
For the snowflake decorations I die-cut one from the 'Flurry Fri-dies' from white CS. I then used one from the 'Funky Flakes Fri-dies' on a dark pink paint chip. I then die-cut the smallest die (from the same 'Funky Flakes' set) from silver-glitter CS. I glued them all together and then to the front of the ornament. I also die-cut the hanging piece (also from the 'Ornament Tag' set) from silver-glitter CS, glued it to the ornament and tied a bow with silver twine. The ornament was then glued to the front of the card.
The sentiment (from 'Sleighride') was heat embossed in silver on a piece of white CS, adhered to the same navy paint chip, trimmed to make a frame and then popped up on foam tape. I also added some navy, pink and clear sequins from Neat and Tangled.
I'm also going to link this to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Anything Goes'.
I so hope I've given you a few ideas for your own cards and maybe a new colour combo to try!! If your thinking of doing any shopping at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps
