CAS Christmas November Reminder - Non-traditional Colours

Hello everyone.  Are you done your Christmas cards yet?  If not, this is the reminder post for the Non-traditional Colours challenge at CAS Christmas.  


Here’s my card.


I just love the joyful expression on this bunny from Hello Bluebird (HB) First Snow stamp set.  He was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It cardstock die cut with My Favorite Things (MFT) Wonky Stitched Rectangle.  Coloured him and the snowy scene with Copic markers, then added snow with a white gel pen.


The ‘Sending Holiday’ sentiment from MFT Bitty Holiday Wishes was black heat embossed.  JOY from HB Joyful Mouse coordinating die was die cut from X-Press It and black cardstock.  Ombré coloured the white letters with the same red Copic markers used to colour the scarf, then added clear shimmer on top for some sparkle (hard to see in the photo, but it’s there).  Stacked and offset them for a shadow effect.  Adhered the panel to a white card base to finish.


Still time to play along.  The challenge closes on November 24 PST.  More inspirations from the designers can be seen HERE.  Thank you for dropping by.  Have a wonderful week.
