Colour Create 32 – Green, Red and White

Hi everyone, there’s a new challenge on Colour Create today and it’s a gorgeous Christmassy combo chosen by our lovely Mina, thanks Mina, loved this one, these are my favourite Christmas colours. So the colours are green, red and white and the option is Christmas, hope you can join us this time, there’s some amazing inspiration from my DT friends which will make you want to go off and make Christmas cards :D!! Our sponsor for this challenge is Simon Says Stamp so there’s a lovely prize on offer too.
For my card I’ve followed a great sketch on Friday Sketchers which I’m also entering my card into

Jacque78
and I’ve used one of the gorgeous Whiff of Joy gnome stamps, Uru and bird which is coloured with distress inks. The paper is by K&Co from Christmas speciality pad, I’ve sponged all the edges with white ink and done some faux stitching. On the green bazzil card I’ve stamped a magnolia fir tree branch in white ink and then added stickles, I did the same with the flowers but without the stickles. To finish off I added some buttons to the flowers and some chenille fibre to the one at the bottom and a Woodware sentiment stamped in white ink which I’ve gone over with a white gel pen. TFL.

¡Es PRECIOSO!, el coloreado del stamp, es una maravilla, ya solo él es un gran trabajo, ademas el resto con tanta costura y la combinación de papeles, te ha quedado una tarjeta increible. Felicidades
Bss. buen dia.

La he vuelto a ver y todavia me parece mas genial, las costuras son hechas con gel y todavia me gustan mas, creo que hacer tanto agujerito es aun mas dificil. Uhauuu!!!!

Hi Chris,
Just lovely! I'm not a great fan of 'cute' stamps usually but I really love this one, he looks very scandinavian. Colouring and faux stitching as ever-superb.
