So Saffron for Christmas?

I love using non-traditional colors for Christmas. The girls that attended my Christmas in August Stamp Camp figured that out on their own. Don't you just love the way the So Saffron makes the 2 blues "pop":


Pay close attention to the Northern Flurry embossing below.......notice  how I swiped my Sponge Dauber across the embossing with Whisper White Craft Ink:


And if you click on the photo above, you might just be able to catch a glimpse of sparkle in the Shimmery White Cardstock. This shimmers all by itself, no need to add more! I cut my snowflake with the same paper from the Snowflakes Set #2 Sizzlits. I tied a piece of Linen Thread and wrapped it around my Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon. The sentiment is from Contempo Christmas.

You can create this card too! Very easily. Don't forget to leave me a comment on my blog candy post if you want a chance to win. Scroll down a few posts to find it! Have a great day!

  2. While this would definitely not be a choice I would make, yes, the blues do really pop and I applaud you for trying it!
