Heart 2 Heart Holiday Color Challenge

The challenge at Heart 2 Heart was to create a Christmas card without using red or green!  I love pinks and rose colors for the holidays, so thought this would work.  I used the new Blossom ink from CTMH for the floral image and front sentiment and Crystal Blue for the leaves and inside sentiment.

The "Christmas" image is done with two layers of the same die cut - CTMH's Christmas thin cut die (Z4004).  After gluing them together, I used the CTMH Shimmer Brush (Z3293) to give some shine and added interest to the word, since it would be white on white.  Helps it stand out a little more.

The flower is from Pretty Poinsettia (B1540) and the shapes are cut from the new CTMH Flower Market Cricut cartridge (Z3285).  I added a Pink Enamel Gem (Z3091) to the center.  The front sentiment is retired.
The inside of the card uses another of the poinsettia images, only I didn't want the dimension of another gem, so used Canary ink to add the center of the flower.  The inside sentiment is from Hymns of Praise (C1653)

This card will be one of the projects in my December Stamp Club classes.

I love the layered poinsettia with the blue bottom but more than anything else, the white Christmas on the white base is awesome! Non-traditional coloured Christmas cards are MY favourite and this one is terrific! Thanks for sharing your card with us at Heart 2 Heart, Gail. Always great to see your creations :)

Love the subtle look of this card and the layering of the sentiment...SUPER! I forget to do that but you reminded me. It's a technique I need to write down and use often. Thanks for the inspiration.

Thanks for playing with us at Heart 2 Heart!
