My Christmas Card Style

I am generally drawn to clean and simple or several layers in traditional colors. For this week’s Double D Challenge, I created a traditional layered card. I am often drawn to pine needles and cones, berries, and a bit of sparkle is always nice.

The stamp set used is The Stamps of Life pinecones2stamp along with matching dies. I used colors from this week’s color challenge at Split Coast Stampers, Early Expresso, Mossy Meadow, and Real Red, all SU colors. While pulling cardstock out, I totally forgot it should be Real Red, which is a bright red like the berries and the ribbon, but pulled out Cherry Cobbler a bit of a darker red. As everything was quite glued down and dry, I decided to let it go and leave well enough alone.

The idea for this card came from the postcard that comes with the set when a club member. I love these postcards and pull them our for inspiration. This time, I basically CASED a card on the postcard. I am sure I used different colors, placed more pine or less pine needles, etc., but basically it is a pretty close match. I am thankful for the designers who create beautiful work to share with all of us for inspiration and to create their idea.

  1. This is gorgeous Lisa. I find a bit of sparkle always adds something to a card. Love the design of this and that bow is stunning.

    1. Thanks, Diana. I keep going back to the large stash of ribbon and keep finding ones that work well. This was so easy to tie and as I just told someone else, I am bow challenged.

  2. WOW!! this is beautiful Lisa. Love that gorgeous bow and you’re right, a touch of sparkle adds so much. I like the look of the Cherry Cobbler instead of Real Red.

    1. Thanks, Gerry. I am slowly getting to know SU colors, but have always known Cherry Cobbler as it is a close match for GKD Cherry Red. That ribbon looked perfect and was easy to tie.

  3. Beautiful festive card. I always like a bit of sparkle on cards. The sheer red ribbon is lovely – awesome bow.

  4. Yes this is very beautiful! I love your pine cones and foliage, red and green! It screams Christmas! And the addition of that festive red bow is the perfect Holiday accent! Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Double D, What’s Your Christmas Style Challenge, Donna, DT Member. Merry Merry!
