When you hear the word "pastel", you usually think of white, soft pink, baby blue or light yellow. But it doesn't have to be. On a recent trip to my local craft store, I came across a paper pad on sale from K & Company called "Best of Brenda Walton". It had lots of different papers some of which are fun summer prints and others were lovely tone on tone papers that can be used for various summer and winter projects. One of the papers had colored birds so I cut the red one out to become the focal point of the card. The tree branch was cut using my Cricut Home Decor cartridge. I think the black branch adds a little dramatic element to the card. The background paper was mounted on mint green cardstock and then onto black cardstock which actually frames everything nicely. Embossed snowflakes and simple sentiment finishes off this Christmas card.
This card was entered into the following challenges:
1. Cupcake Craft Challenge #101 - Pastel Christmas.
2. Tuesday Taggers - Christmas
3. Tuesday Throwdown #10 - Christmas in July
4. Little Red Wagon Craft Challenge#39 - Christmas in July
