It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a wonderful color challenge for us:
I was also inspired by the fabulous list across at Festive Friday:. Who could resist playing along with World Kindness day? I went with embossing, flowers and die-cut.
This is such a wonderful Christmas color challenge, but I decided to go a different direction! The addition of the silver/gold really does take these colors to a whole other level - and I loved it. In fact, I made two cards using these colors. The one today uses two of the new sets that I got as part of my anniversary gift. The one I will share tomorrow is an SU only card.
For this card, I decided to go with the gold as my accent metallic. I used the gold for the little envelope as you can see in the closeup below:
The stamping behind the envelope is from The Greetery set called Pretty Postmarks. I used it in the bottom left and top right of my card behind the envelope. The die behind the envelope is from the Pretty Postmarks die set. I love the postage stamp edge with the stitched border on the inside.
I used the Shaded Spruce and Real Red on the inserts for the envelope. I popped the envelope off from the base of the card and did the same with a couple of the florals. the whole thing was put onto a Neenah Solar White 110# base. Here's my full card:
I used two of the stamps from the Pretty Postmarks set for the envelope:
I also used the same Pretty Postmarks die for the inside - and you will notice the inside postmark stamps, too. I LOVE these sets. In case you missed it, I made another card with this set and you can see it on this post. I hate to tell you, but I think you might be seeing a lot of this set :-)
As usual the design team have some wonderful inspiration for you:
I'll be back tomorrow with my Stampin' Up! only card made with these colors. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift today.
