Towards the end of 2018, I decided that 2019 would be the year for at least three Christmas cards each month, in an effort to not have to rush making the last few in November. I plan to make some gift tags each month, too, so I’m hoping to keep it up and share Christmas projects all year. I’m starting with this one. I’ve made a card that is very me, clean and simple with a colored image and a cluster.
I’ve colored up Got the Wreath with my trusty Copics in reds and grays. I’m not normally a fan of red, but I’m happy when I can make it a deep, brownish red and pair it with gray. That works in my world. Red and green, not so much. I had to color the wreath with greens, though, and I don’t think there’s too much of it, so it kind of works and the green doesn’t compete with the red for all the attention, which is sometimes an issue when using complementary colors.
I diecut some scraps of Maja Design patterned paper from different Christmas collections and added them in a cluster in the top right corner. I’ve got Fröjdefull Jul, Home for the Holidays, and red monochromes from the Joyous Winterdays collection all in a neat little cluster, diecut with dies from Docrafts, Craft Emotions, and My Favorite Things.
I white heat embossed a Norsk Stempelblad AS heart on one of the diecut pieces, and that’s my card for today.
I’ll try to be better at including the colors I’ve used, so here they are.
