This is the first time I’ve entered the Global Design Project Challenge. I used the closest colors I had to their pallet – Old Olive, Lovely Lipstick and Smoky Slate. The image from Holiday Greetings Mix 1 by Simon Says was stamped in Fresh Asparagus (the closest to Old Olive) on a white panel cut 2¾” x 4½”. I colored the berries with Copic R85. The leaves were colored with Prisma Pencil 911, heavy on one side of the leaves, lighter on the other for contrast. The Wishing You A and Christmas from the same set were stamped in Soft Stone. The focal panel was matted with a piece of Dusty Rose cut 3 x 4¾” placed on a Soft Stone card base. This is probably not a combination I would have used, especially for a Christmas card, but I like how it turned out.

You did great with the color substitution. I really like the set you used. The large Merry with the small sentiments really catches the eye.
Thanks Lisa. I HAD to have that set. There is a background stamp that matches the leaves around Merry – I stamped it in VersaMark on the gray but it doesn’t show up in the picture.
Very nice. Love the sentiment!
Thanks Diana. It was one I just HAD to have.
So cool, love how it turned out. You should use these colors more!
Thanks Bonnie. I decided I do like the color combo.
I love the design of this. It is beautiful and meets the challenge perfectly. It is hard to match colours exactly but usually we get close enough with what we have.
Thanks Johanna. Since all I have is Gina K cardstock, I thought the colors were a pretty good match.
Judy, this is beautiful! I love that the MERRY is vertical and the rest of the sentiment is horizontal. Such a great way to draw the eye.
What a great card and stamped sentiment. I love the vertical sentiment surrounded by the ivy and holly.
Very pretty Judy. I love the vertical sentiment. I think it’s so fun using non traditional colors on Christmas cards.
