Craftymessers - Non-traditional Christmas Card

Hello and welcome to my crafty blog.

Today my post is my DT card for the Craftymessers Challenge Blog. The theme, chosen by teamie Shirly-Anne,  is for a card using non-traditional colours and/or images to create a Christmas Card. Our sponsors this time is Meiflower and Crimson cloud with some great prizes for the winner of the challenge. The challenge starts today and runs for a forthnight.

They are offering a £10.00 Voucher to spend in their store for the winner !! Whoop Whoop !!

Crimson Cloud 
Crimson Cloud are sponsoring us on this one, they have done a guest design spot the prize is 3 die cuts for the winner, their choice.

I'm a big fan of the Non-Trad Christmas card  and I have been known to use bright pinks and greens and even black in previous Christmas Cards. This time my card was made using a Navy coloured card-base with a strip of lime green card, torn to create rough edges.  A piece of bright pink ribbon was stamped with snowflakes and adhered to the lime green card. Some pink gems were added to the centre of the snowflakes. I stamped some tree outlines and the sentiment with Versamark  and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. I stamped the image on to white card and coloured it using Copics and the finished image was adhered to the card with some dimensional adhesive pads to make it pop.  I like how the colours work and still have a Christmas feel.

The stamped images and sentiment come from the same Polka-Doodles stamp set that was a freebie with a Christmas issue of Papercraft Essentials.

Thanks for stopping by to read my blog and don't for get to leave me a comment. I love hearing from you!
