I love Christmas cards as much as the next crafter, however, there comes a point that I stop being excited about the limited color pallet that goes along with the holidays. So today, I have pulled a few of the new Way with Words dies and paired it with some non traditional holiday colors and even a few non holiday dies.
Step One: Pick your traditional holiday colors. I pulled out a piece of Pewter Soft Finish Cardstock trimmed to 12×6 inches to be the card base along with some Lavender, Silver Gray and Dusky Lavender Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Two: Die cut the A Way with Words Wreath & Elements large wreath out of Silver Gray Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the small wreath and flower from the same die out of the Lavender cardstock. Finally, die cut the new A Way With Words Flourished Deer out of the Dusky lavender cardstock.
Step Three: Using liquid adhesive, adhere the die cuts onto the card frame. I used Kids Choice Glue.
Step Four: Die cut the sentiment from the new A Way With Words Merry Christmas 3 die and die cut it twice, once in dusky lavender and once in lavender. Adhere the die cuts together, leaving a shadow of color behind.
Step Five: I started to add the sentiment to the top of the card frame, but thought the card look too busy.
So instead, I added the sentiment inside the card.
Step Six: Finally, I added a few craft drops to the small wreath in a darker pink color because I thought the card needed just a little bit of something.
I hope you get as excited as I do about creating holiday cards in new color pallets. Let me know in the comments below what your favorite non traditional colors to craft with are. Until then, Happy crafting!
