Video: Winter Holiday Card in Non-Trational Color

by May Sukyong Park

Hi crafty friends! It's May here sharing a winter holiday card that I made with non-holiday color scheme.

Altenew_Winter Holiday Card_May Park_2I've never loved using the color blue on my card, but something strange has happened to me since Altenew released their new shades of blue inks: Cool Summer Night.

I can't believe I picked blue inks again within a week after I made a blue ombre background card. Can you tell blue is my favorite color at the moment? :)

Altenew_Winter Holiday Card_May Park_3I started by creating a stamped background using the various images from the Lacy Scrolls stamp set with Crisp Inks: Dusk. Then I added some ink splatter with same color on the background.

Altenew_Winter Holiday Card_May Park_5After inking the rectangle panel using Dusk Crisp Ink and a blending tool, I mounted it on the card front along with a piece of white Fenstone Decorative Element.

Altenew_Winter Holiday Card_May Park_7I heat embossed the reindeer image from the Festive Silhouettes stamp set with Ranger super fine gold embossing powder for the focal point of my card. Then I fussy cut it with scissors and mounted it on the top of the card.

After adding sentiment from the Label Love stamp set, I finished off the card with some gold sequins from Classic Christmas Sequins Mix by Pretty Pink Posh.
