non-traditional Christmas colors

Here's a card for you using pink and green. Funny, pink and green was the color combo of the diehard preppies back in my days at Hillsdale College. Think pink cable knit sweater and green wide wale corduroys. It's a good thing not all fashion trends come back again...

Meet my card.

Made a cardbase from kraft CS and stamped dots (Technique Tuesday) as falling snow.  Cut the tree line die (Impression Obsession) twice from white and once from PP (Kaisercraft Silly Holiday).

Trimmed the trees from PP die cut and adhered them to one white die cut.  Trimmed trees off of the other white die cut and used it as my second snow slope.  Adhered washi to chipboard and die cut deer (Memory Box) from it.   TIP: This is a way to stretch your stash. And washi tape prints are usually nice and small and therefore perfect for small die cuts.

Adhered slopes and deer and then a recycled vellum strip with a sentiment. TIP: Sentiments are a great thing to recycle from your yearly supply of received Christmas cards. Voila! Non-traditional but still clearly holiday.

I'm playing at:


  1. LOVE the tip and use of washi tape. I have heaps here and should use it up the same. Your non trad colours appeal to me as well. Enjoy your weekend.x

  2. I love this - so FUN! Especially the washi tape deer - I'll have to remember that tip as I have lots of washi and not many ideas.

  3. Stunning, I am loving the non traditional colors and also those trees :)

  4. I am quite fond of your pink deer and everything else on the card, it is really stunning because there is so much white space and everything pops! Well done with this challenge and thinking outside the box! Thank you for joining us at Merry Monday!

  5. Yum, Maria ... the pink and green pops of colour are gorgeous with those wonderful snow banks ... and your washi polka dot deer ... delicate and delicious! Hugs, Anita :)

  6. Love your non traditional coloured card! Great tip for all of us collecting that Washi tape.

  7. Gorgeous design, I love how you used the colours!
