And when we don't know what to do, we tend to fall back on the known...they give us comfort and they make us happy. And what can be more traditional than the red and green on Christmas? So when I was stuck on what colors to use for my next card, guess which papers I picked up?
Red and Green, of course....
I started with this sketch at Sketch Saturday blog - the first time I am playing there. Something about the sketch just clicked.
And here is what I came up with
Ok...so truth be told, these papers are not among my favorites. They just look too bold but somehow, I don't mind them here. The papers are from an old DCWV Christmas paper stack. It is probably the first one I ever bought - it was on after Christmas sale at Jo-ann. Probably was $3.99 and I thought to myself, what a good deal. Well, that was then....
I think Jo-ann, Micheal's, and all the other on-line stores got the better of me since one $3.99 purchase hooked me for life. More paper. more stamps, more dies.....
Not that I am complaining, of course :)
The image is Magnolia Tilda. The sentiment is Justrite and is matted with the Spellbinder Stars oval die. The corner is framed with Memory Box " Madera Corner"
The inside is covered with the same paper ( you can probably guess now why I ain't too fond of the paper). In this case, I framed the sentiment box with the thicker width green paper. When I tried my usual, thin backing, it didn't work too well.
