Holly Jolly Greetings


Welcome to the beginning of the Christmas inspiration of the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Saturday Blog Hop.  For quite a few weeks coming up, each Saturday the design team is going to have a different Christmas theme inspiration!  Our second challenge – make a Christmas card using non-traditional colors!


So I’m thinking white, grey and black really aren’t traditional colors…right?  Connie said it was okay…LOL!!!  I love playing with Sleigh Ride edgelits and I think this turned out to be soooo elegant!

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White THICK – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 4 x 5 1/4, run through the Softly Falling Embossing folder, add to card front (I used the ‘back side’ up on this).
  • Silver Glimmer – 2 3/4 x 4 1/4.  NOTE…I cut out some of the Silver Glimmer that is behind where the framelits are.  This made it easier to add the black panel.
  • Basic Black – 2 1/2 x 3 7/8, punch along the top using the Star Border Punch, add to Silver Glimmer panel.  Add to card front.
  • Cut out the house edgelit from Basic Grey, tree edgelit from Smoky Slate, sleigh edgelit from Whisper White.  Add each layer using dimensionals.
  • Basic Black – 1/2 x 2, stamp greeting using Versamark, white emboss, cut into a banner and add to card front.
  • Add Winter Wonderland Embellishment to finish off.
