Color Hues #28

It's time for a new color another challenge at the Color Hues! I hope you join us for Color Hues #28!

I have always loved these colours together, especially at Christmas time!

This CAS card would be a good choice for mass producing. You could do all the cutting or stamping first and then quickly make the cards using an assembly line approach.


I started off by creating a snowy background with the MFT Paint Splatter rubber cling stamp. I white embossed it on a 5.25 x 4' panel of kraft cardstock. The snowdrifts were made using an older Pretty Pink Posh die set that I trimmed down to the width of the panel. 

TIP: If you didn't have a die for snowdrifts it's so easy to make your own with scissors. Use a piece of cardstock the width of your card depending on the orientation--portrait or landscape. For best results cut in one continuous motion across without stopping so the drift looks more natural

The Christmas trees were cut with a triangle tree die--cut in red, white and gold sparkle cardstock. I added a bit of dimension with foam tape behind the gold tree and the sentiment, The Greetery Sign and Sealed stamp set.


I can't wait to see what you all create but first head over to the Color Hues blog to see the fabulous creations my teammates have made for Color Hues #28!

Have a great day!

  1. I need a paint splatter stamp! This one looks perfectly random... and as though you splattered it yourself. ;) Your card is beautiful!

  4. Such a simple effective design, I agree it looks perfect for batch making. I can't believe that the background is a stamp! :)
