Less is More Week 196 - colour challenge
What a wonderful week of newsprint entries we had for last weeks' Less is More! This week we have a colour challenge, to use non-traditional Christmas colours. So many colours are used for Christmas cards these days, but I decided that, as long as I avoided red and green, it would be non-traditional! My first card is a tentfold. It uses some gorgeous Penny Black silhouette stamps against a Distress Inked background with a SU sentiment, I've created shadows with second generation stamp.
Second card uses pink and white, a very non-trad Christmas combi for me! The background paper and the sentiment are both from Pink Petticoat and I've diecut with a Memory Box die and added a few gems, like this CAS layout.
My third card is very Pinterest influenced, I've free-cut my tree trunk and branches and added them to a Kraft background cut with my Simon Says Stamp die and added a die cut bird and an SU sentiment.
I look forward to lots of CAS inspiration for Christmas!
