I’m just finishing off the majority of my glass ornaments (have some bags to make and 3 more ornaments and then I’m done with that project).  However, on a Facebook page for my LSS they were having a challenge to make a Christmas card using non-traditional colours and I got a reminder in my email today that it’s the last day to play along.

I have to admit it wasn’t much of a challenge as I love non-traditional Christmas colours (as mentioned before, my favourite way to use them is to incorporate ONE non-trad colour in with traditional red and green).  The challenge for me was to find some time to participate before the end of the day.

I think this is one of the quickest cards I’ve ever made.  I chose an image that was super easy to fussy cut and just embossed some white-core cardstock and sanded it to reveal the snowflakes.

I didn’t really have a matching copic marker so I played around with three shades of pink to get a shade that matches fairly closely.  I also dusted off some Martha Stewart tinsel glitter (what was I thinking when I bought that stuff?) and was pleased to use a bit of it even though it was the most neutral colour.

Paper Smooches stamps work wonderfully with simple layouts.  I wish I owned just about every set and Kim is KILLING me by creating so many snowmen.  There are several more snowman sets I want (hello???? Freezy Fellas???? ADORABLE!!!) but I have to restrain myself as I probably have more Christmas stamps than all of my other stamps put together.

With luck, I’ll be finished up with the ornaments today or tomorrow and then I start the mad panic of creating some cards that have to be mailed to the UK.
