Stampin' Up! Australia - Color Coach Card #128 - Stampin' Up! Christmas Card

Sahara Sand #1



Welcome to this week's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.

I chose Color Coach colours of Sahara Sand, Pear Pizzazz and Early Espresso to make a neutral toned Christmas Card.

Please don't look at the crooked pearls!! DON'T JUDGE ME! :)

The sketch called for diagonal details so I just used the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder to keep the layers minimal. 

Here is our sketch...

  1. I am loving these non-traditional Christmas colors! Those pearls add wonderful elegance. Simply beautiful, but if it were me that card would only be reserved for someone very special. Some things are just too pretty to just give away. ;)

  2. How beautiful the wreath looks in those colors! I love how the color combination and stripes make your card so modern and polished!

  3. Love the non-trad colors for Christmas! Very earthy. Love the pearl bling!

  4. Oh my....what a gorgeous, soft colored Christmas card! I love the pearly bling and the elegant stripes too!

  5. What a great color combination for a Christmas card! So soft looking! The diagonal striped embossing was a lovely touch, too! Great job with the sketch challenge!

  6. Wow, I love how well this colour combo works and would never have dreamed it up! Love the addition of the pearls and border line too and the embossed striped background. Gorgeous!
