Hi Everyone, it’s Priscilla here. Today I have two holiday cards with a “not-your-ordinary” color scheme. Blue and gray for the Holidays? Why not? Let’s get started!
For this first card, I used the just-released “Christmas Tree Coverplate” die from Kat Scrappiness. Such a beautiful die and so easy to craft with! I die cut the “Christmas Tree Coverplate” out of steel gray card stock and then backed it with with a new-to-me acetate I got from Kat‘s shop, the Crafter’s Companion “Luxury Snowfall Acetate.” No need to add snow – it’s already printed on the acetate! Perfect for all those upcoming winter cards!
I mounted this top layer over a baby blue card stock layer and then adhered everything to an A2 card base. I layered the “Happy Holidays” die sentiment with blue and white card stock, adhered it to the front, and then added a few Kat Scrappiness “White Snowflake Sprinkles” on the tree. Done, and so easy!
For my second card, I used the “Pine Tree/ Icicle Duo Border Die” from Kat Scrappiness.
This border die is like having two dies in one because when used upright, it cuts out a Pine Tree Border, and when flipped around, it creates an icicle border!
For my card I used the die to create an icicle border, adding it to the top of a evergreen stenciled background. I used the Newton’s Nook Designs “Evergreen Stencil” and white pigment ink over blue-gray card stock to create my wintery backdrop. The white deer and snowy slope are from Kat’s “Crafters Essentials – Winter Dies”, and the silver embossed “warm winter wishes” is from the Lawn Fawn “Winter Scripty Sentiments.” Kat‘s “Sparkling Clear Jewels” completed this card.
The supplies I used are listed and linked below.
