what I created for the 'Sisterhood of the Traveling Cards' last swap of last month of last year~~~
In fact, for the month of December our hostess Donna (cricutqueen)challenged us to play with colors~ we were encouraged to use color splash (aka using same hues of one color) or making our cards implementing our favorites color or colors combinations.
I decided on the latter.
My favorite color choices (besides the never ending very elegant white/black color combo) is to use green and burgundy together....not just any green...for example I really don't care much for very dark green card stock but prefer instead, a softer middle tone such as Old Olive from SU! ...and as far as red color the darker the better for me like burgundy, cranberry, any deep red,rich wine colors will do!
My card layout came from partly casing this
wonderful Christmas twin treed card received from a dear friend from Ontario,Canada. (thanks Karen!) :o)
I really, really like the pristine clean cut look to it.
Although this one is based on a monochromatic hue
I chose to create mine with two main colors in mind ,earthy and warm tones. Made a few minor
changes between cards as I couldn't settle which
final look I liked better...lol
Hopefully the sistahs on the receiving end of these,
will be happy with my results...
whichever they may receive :o)
Thanks for visting...and remember ...
I DO look forward to read your comments.......*muwahhh*
