Christmas in May!


Well, it's the last Thursday of the month, so I'll share another Christmas card.  Here the traditional green and red are "blued" a bit to give us the aqua and purple of this card. 
  • The gingerbread man focal was made using a "Snag'em" stamp from imaginisce. It was stamped onto tan paper and then accented with a marker.  
  • The papers are from Hot Off the Press.  
  • The borders are all from the peel-off border sticker sheet.  The border itself lines the largest mat.  The purple one is bordered with the "innies" from that border (the little tear-drop shapes from the inside of the border - left behind when it was removed).  Then the border right around the gingerbread man is from in-between the border strips. 
  • The greeting is another outline sticker.

I love how you used all parts of the sticker sheet - I do the same! No sense wasting them.

Eye-popping colors! You might have the next trend-setting holiday color combination! I love to see the gingerbread boy with a tie or vest using the bright colors to make a visual connection.

Great idea, Becca! In real life, the little bit of color on the gingerbread boy matches better than it looks in the picture, but a vest or tie out of the colored paper would have been a GREAT addition to the card. Thanks for that idea!
