SUO Challenge #136

Favorite Holiday Colors



I just love the Christmas Season and when our 6 year old son insisted on putting up the Christmas Tree on Halloween, I really didn't have the desire to say no.  I was just as excited as him.  Making Christmas Cards is another favorite holiday time activity.  My favorite holiday colors are a combination of any Blue and Silver.  Today's card, I opted to use Night of Navy with Silver and Whisper White.


The card base is Whisper White Thick Cardstock layered with Night of Navy then another layer of Whisper White with a hole cut out using the Circle Collections Framelits then embossed with teh Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The Softly Falling embossing folder is a great way to add texture and I love how it feels like there is snow falling.  

I created the focal scene using the Sleigh Ride Edgelits Dies.  I cut the houses from Night of Navy.  The Sleigh Ride is cut using the Silver Foil Sheets.  They were then layered together and placed behind the circle to create the focal point for a winter scene.

Another favorite product of mine is the Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies along with the Holly Jolly Greetings Stamp Set.  The banner below the winter scene features these two items together.  I've used Night of Navy Classic ink for the stamped sentiment then added the Night of Navy Peace to the banner.  I also added a Night of Navy banner behind the Whisper White along with Silver Metalic Thread for added "POP."
