This year I’ve been drawn to the more traditional holiday colors with a touch of rustic, farmhouse style. You might notice it with my latest rubber stamp kit for Unity and also with the new digital paper pack I’ve designed. Today I’m combining both of them to create a unique Winter card.
To begin, I printed the digital patterned papers on photo paper, which makes the patterns look very bright and pretty. I cut a large A2 panel from the distressed black and white gingham sheet and a smaller rectangle from the poinsettia on chalkboard patterned sheet. I used kraft cardstock for both the card base and the matting frame.
The Poinsettia branch was colored with Spectrum Noir markers. The colors that seemed to match the patterned papers best were the Magenta reds. This is a very detailed image but it will always end up looking regal no matter how much shading you decide to add to it.
I printed a sentiment from the kit and cut a banner from it. I added a couple of Silver Glitter Dust Photo Corners to it, which added an elegant sparkly touch to contrast the rustic details on the card. I also tied some jute twine around the other end of the banner. Both the sentiment, the fussy cut Poinsettias and the organic sticks added to them were adhered with Gina K. Designs Permanent Adhesive Runner and 3D Zots.
Love, love, love this color combo. Black, red and kraft look SO great together. I invite you to try it out for your Holiday and Winter cards this year! This card has a simple layout, but the colors and patterns make it pop beautifully.
That’s it for today. Hope you enjoyed today’s card!
