This morning I challenged the Card-a-Dayers to create a Christmas card using non-traditional colors. So here's what I came up with in case you needed some inspiration.
This first card is sticking pretty close to Christmas colors with pinks, burgundy, and green. So I didn't really think too far out of the box on this one. But it still counts! It's not red and green, technically.
Wish I could take credit for the design on this card, but it really is just the paper's design. I just cut it down to card size! So this one was a total "cheater." I do love that nutcracker though!
Next card is just neutrals, gray and black. This card is about a step away from the traditional Christmas color box. No red or green -- or anything else, for that matter -- on this card.
Moving a little further away from the proverbial box is the next card. It's clean, simple and colorful.
Now for the last card.
I went for bold and graphic here. This card is so far outside of the traditional Christmas box that I can't even see the box anymore. If you look closely, I had a little issue with embossing my image. As I was working with the card, the heated embossing powder began to flake off! I've never seen that happen. I guess there's a first for everything, bummer.
Well, that's it for me and my non-traditional Christmas color Christmas cards. I hope it's brought you some inspiration and I can't wait to see what you come up with!
