Hi there! Emily Midgett here with you today, and I have a holiday card featuring several different components, textures, and some deep, rich colors that are somewhat traditional, but also somewhat non-traditional! I love using unique colors, especially for holiday cards, and so I always enjoy finding new ways to change up a traditional color scheme. For today's project, I have a twist on the traditional red, green, and white by switching things up to teal, plummy maroon, and crisp white, with lots of sparkle and texture to boot! Let's get started with the details.
I began today's project by using some sparkling maroon glitter paste with the Leaves and Berries Stencil on some deep teal cardstock. The combination of the two intense, jewel-toned colors and the sparkling texture of the glitter paste remind me of gorgeous handmade paper that you find in specialty stationery shops. So luxurious.
While my glittery background was drying, I cut a frame and foliage from the same teal cardstock using the Create-A-Wreath Die Set. I also die cut a few berry branches from the darkest shade included in the Pink Brilliance Gradient Glitter Cardstock pack.
Next, I die cut the Happy Holidays dies three times from some bright white cardstock, adhering them together to create a dimensional die-cut. I trimmed the glittery panel down slightly and adhered it with a panel of solid plum cardstock peeking out on the right hand side. I arranged the die-cuts on the glittery card front, adhering them with foam adhesive for lots of extra dimension and height. The final touch was some iridescent white pearls for even more texture.
Well, that's all for my project today! I hope you'll try spicing up your own holiday color combinations from the traditional colors. It's so much fun, and the results are so beautiful and unexpected! Thanks for reading, and have a marvelous day.
