Sweet (pea) Christmas


I needed a break from studying today so I made a Christmascard for a couple of challenges. I used stamps from my DT kit from sweetpea stamps. If you like these stamps then you should check out the new ones that are available for preorder. This company is really blooming and Lynette is coming up with more and more beautiful stamps every time. I can't wait to tell you about the next release, but you'll have to wait a while longer for that. These are not the ones I used for my card. You can see the ones I used at the bottom of this page. It's sheet number 12.
Have you gone and voted for your favourite yellow/red/blue card by the way on the sweetpea blog?

So the card is made following a sketch at Christmas and birthday cards. I flipped it on the side.
I used a colourcombo of turquoise, brown/black and sand beige from color throwdown. Never thought I'd use this combo especially for a Christmascard, but I took on the challenge and even had papers to match!
Other blogs that had Christmas as theme are:
creative inspirations
stamp with Sarah Kay
and Marga has Christmas as a challenge to be in her candy.

Creative card crew had scallops as their challenge.



I never would've guessed that this card would turn out so good. I just coloured the images a little, cut them out with my nesties and glued it all together. That's really how it all went down. Sometimes it takes me forever with a card and it's not even half as nice. Good thing it didn't take too long because I really don't have time for this, lol.
