An Christmas Easel Card In Non-Traditional Colors


I had been wanting to make an Easel Card for some time now and have also be playing around with non-traditional colors for a Christmas Card - so I combined the two for this posting.

For my stamps I used the SU Patterned Trees set. The base of the card is SU textured CS in Really Rust. The ink colors are Old Olive, Pixie Pink, Tempting Turquoise and Pumpkin Pie.

After the card was finished I realized I did not have an envelope to match so I had to create a pattern to make my own. I will have that tutorial tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope to see you tomorrow!

Wishing you a great day! The sunshine is back in WI - makes the cold weather tolerable! :<)
