Christmas Craft Creations August Challenge

Hello there,

Ooo have we got a great Christmas Craft Creations challenge this month: Non-Traditional Colours. 

Now of course this can mean different colours in different parts of the world but here in the UK I consider red and green to be traditional colours so I steered clear of those! 

In recent years I have been using a turquoise and pink theme for some Christmas cards so I wanted to avoid those and really challenge myself, so I picked yellow and grey! I think these are as far away from a Christmas theme as you could find. My design is fairly simple with the stag head repeat stamped, for which I did have to draw some pencil guidelines and then erase. I added my Clearly Besotted sentiment using a Clearly Besotted die and I kept it all flat to the card base so I could post this one. I'm always keenly aware of the price difference on posting flat cards in the UK and try to make more of my Christmas cards flat. Finally I added some Earl Grey Nuvo drops which I recently purchased and am still getting to grips with. This one is from the vintage collection so it has a slightly matt finish. 

I think it turned out ok, what do you think? I also think you could use this for a birthday around Christmas time with a different sentiment. 

Head on over to the Christmas Craft Creations blog for some more inspiration from the wonderful Design Team and definitely join in the fun. I'm so excited to see what wonderful creations you can conjure up with non-traditional colours! 

Much love
