Revamped Christmas Card

Good Morning to you-all!!!

Today, I decided to try out something new, a Holiday card that's a little bit out of my "Seasonal" comfort zone. When I think of Christmas, I'd usually think of the traditional colors and patterns which we are most likely to use such as deep greens, reds, and golden tones.

The paper that I used for this card was taken from Cosmo Cricket's Jolly by Golly Paper Crafting Kit, if these sheets weren't labeled "Jolly by Golly", I would have never imagined to use these fun and funky colors for my upcoming Christmas projects!

So, I decided to ditch the traditional Christmas card and re-vamp it! I used a bold colorful striped patterned paper and accented it with black hearts instead of the typical Christmas ornaments; I then embellished the edges with faux stitching using Ranger Ink's Inkssentials White Pen, a Christmas-inspired chipboard sentiment and the finishing touch, a coordinating ribbon and voilà!

A non-traditional, clean and simple holiday card ready for gift giving!

Now, I challenge you to try and re-vamp this year's holiday crafting by trying out something different, I'm sure you'll be amazed by the results!

Hope you've enjoyed today's project, have a great weekend everyone!!!
