Guest Designer for 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - August Colour Challenge

Hello there.  I’m so excited to be popping in today as a guest designer (GD) this week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown (52CCT) for their August colour challenge: Rose Pink, Aqua and Metallic Gold.


Those who know me know I love non-traditional colour Christmas cards.  This colour combo is definitely non-traditional and is beautiful, but I must admit it’s one I would not have thought of on my own.  It took me a bit of time and eventually, I came up with this snowy scene card.


Initially, I was going to use aqua for the sky, but this pink pattern paper from the beautiful Blurry Flurries 6x6 paper pack by Whimsy Stamps won out.  It was die cut out with an A2 stitched rectangle die (retired) and the sentiment (retired) was heat embossed on it using metallic gold embossing powder.


The bears from Polar Bear Pals by My Favorite Things (MFT) were stamped onto Xpress It cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Coloured and shaded them in with Copic markers (BG34, BG32, G00, G0000, R20 (cheeks), C4, C2, C00), then die cut them out with the coordinating dies.  A snowbank was then die cut from Bristol paper using a MFT Stitched Snow Drifts die.  Assembled the card to finish. 


I want to thank Andreja and the 52CCT team for having me GD with them this week.  For ideas and inspirations from the design team, head on over to the challenge post HERE.  Thank you for stopping by.
