Our first Challenge given by our fearless leader Lynell:
Thanksgiving Day Parade of Christmas Cards in non traditional colors. I gave you a sneak peek yesterday so here is the entire project! So...Ta Da...a very non traditional colors Christmas Card!!!
So I started with a mustard yellow base card and then layered a cool piece of paper by Basic Grey on top for my backdrop. This is where I pulled all the different colors from to make the card. I loved the peachy color and happy to have a cool snip it of peach ribbon stuff. I added it to the side of the card.
I then went to work building my pear. I started with glossy blue embossing paste on the sister paper of the one already on the card
While the pear was drying I used black glossy embossing paste on the flip side of the paper for my "Merry Christmas". (I ended up just pasting right on the card so now I have a spare!)
The next bit gets repetitive so will not show you each step but I had to go over the again with crackle paste this time and let it dry. I then added a little creamy brown chalk in by Clearsnap so the crackle paste was not so white.
I then put the pear stencil back in place and layered the partridge stencil where I wanted it on the pear. The entire image does not fit which is why I left the pear stencil over the image. This prevents my next step on using the black glossy paste on the partridge from getting any on the background paper! I layered everything together for the finished project. A VERY non traditional colors Christmas Card!
