Today’s holiday card will hopefully be making someone’s spirits bright in just a few weeks! It’s Sunday and time to play with The Paper Players!
It’s color challenge week at The Paper Players and the amazingl talented Joanne has a very timely color combo for us to play with:
For my “color of choice” I went with Basic White. While I created a holiday card to add to my stash, I can’t wait to see what YOU create!
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
Oh my gosh! If only you could see all of the changes this card evolved through until it was finally completed. I always felt that one of my strengths as a card maker was my ability to combine lovely designer series papers of various patterns and hues. However, no matter how hard I tried to combine several of the gorgeous holiday papers I have in my Stampin’ Up! stash, I just couldn’t make them work with this layout. In my frustration, I tossed everything into my “Pile of Misfit Card Parts”. Call it fate. Call it a happy little accident. Call it luck. The Real Red banner, matted onto Distressed Gold and Shaded Spruce, happened to land on top of a small piece of Basic White cardstock which had been embossed using the Distressed Tile 3D embossing folder, my “go-to” embossing folder of late. That’s when it hit me – I needed to use embossed cardstock as my backdrop for the gorgeous Distressed Gold die cut and classic banner. And the rest, as they say, is history.
