Happy Holidays

Hey everyone!  Just a quick post to share a card I made.  For this card I decided to step away from my beloved white cardstock and use a coloured card base.  I realized recently that I don't use other colours for my card bases very often anymore.  I need to try and use some colour now and then. :-). Take a look...

So I used a nice dark blue cardstock for my base and I masked off a section and stamped my snowflakes (both by Hero Arts, large one F5793 and small one LP209) and embossed them in white.  Then I removed the mask and stamp my sentiment (Michaels) and embossed it in white as well.  I added some trimmed strips of silver glitter tape to finish it off.  Love the look of the white and silver against the blue.

Well, I hope you've enjoyed your visit!  I'm off to paint some more kitchen cupboards!  Have a wonderful day!

I'd like to link up to the following challenges:

  2. It is fab to use coloured base sometimes and this really does look striking. Love the silver and while on blue. Great to see you at TO

  3. Love your card, Kim! Never thought of using blue for the base for a Christmas card -- it sure looks elegant with the white and silver! Hugs!
