Cheery Christmas

I recently made this black, white, and red Christmas card for my TAC open house. I really liked it ... new, modern, and different with these colors. Then I decided to try it with the traditional colors ...

Black, White, & Red

For this card I used the Cheery Christmas TAC set. What I love about this tree is that you don't have to use the entire tree (it is really big) ... Just stamp it and use the top as I did here. I stamped it with Palette L'Amour Red ink. Punched it out and adhered it to the red scalloped circle. The black background was embossed with the swirl cuttlebug embossing folder. White sheer ribbon was tied around the card and then the image was pop dotted on top of the ribbon. For the final touch I added crystal stickles for a bit of bling on the swirls in the tree and in the "cheers".

More Traditional

For this card I started out using TAC Amelia papers and the coordinating tag that comes with the paper. I stamped the tree again on a gold card stock this time with Palette Moulin Rouge ink and sponged the edges as well. I mounted it on a burgundy scalloped circle. I added dark yellow eyelets to the holes in the tags. I then added a burgundy satin ribbon from the Amelia ribbon collection and topped it off with the crystal stickles once again.

Two great cards ... two totally different looks ... challenge yourself today ... make a card and then make it again differently by just changing up the colors!

    Oh boy oh boy! I really like the colors of this card! It is wonderful for Christmas! Love the layout too!

  2. That is a cool idea to do two different versions of the same card, a good self-challenge and way to develop your style. My mom just made two versions of my birthday card and it was really interesting to see how she did two different takes on the same idea.
    Here, I think I like the traditional one a bit better, it brought out the Christmas emotions to me a little bit more.
