It's been a busy few days. I've been designing some Christmas cards for display at The Baker's Wife and working on some other projects that I'll share later.
I showed my husband the card that I made with black patterned paper and his reaction was "A black Christmas card? No, no, no, no, no." I said, "Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes." Now I ask you, what's wrong with that? Personally, I think it's fine and will continue to make them. We will never agree on this.
I'll share this particular card with you first. I have alot of scraps from past projects. I kept seeing this one particular piece of patterned paper out of the corner of my eye and it was "right" for a simple Christmas card. I like to coordinate all my patterned scraps together and use them for quick cards. It seems to be such a waste not to use them. What's your thought on this one? Is the black so awful for a Christmas card?
Here's the rest of them. I'll list the products used below the last card.
Products used for these include: Doublemates cardstock, patterned paper from: GCD Studios - Chapelle - Paris Nights, Moxie - Joys of the Season - Winter Wonderland - Through The Woods, Best Creation - FaLaLa Christmas, Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Black Soot, Hero Arts Gemstones in Light Blue & Olive Green, Bazzill Cardinal Jewels, May Arts Ribbon, Gold Twine, Burlap Twine, Buttons, Hero Arts Clear Design Stamps - Winter's Butterfly - CL 234 & Holiday Sayings - CL 343
