I think I totally forgot to do my Jingle Belles card for the last challenge two weeks ago. And something luckily stirred me to get this done last night - the Summer of Color Challenge colors for this week actually. I think I managed to marry the two challenges together but let's just check and see.
The Jingle Belles said NO DESIGNER PAPER. (That's not hard for me, it's usually the opposite that hangs me up.) And the SOC colors for this week are Red, Red, and Metallic. My first reaction to those colors of course was holiday. Though I've been adding to my little color journal for this SOC challenge (and I still might do something else) I really felt compelled to do a Christmas card and to apply it to my lovely Jingle Belles.
You see no designer paper involved (even the die-cut joy was from a recycled gift card holder envelope which I hope doesn't count as such), and the design was embossed in gold EP. I've had that background stamp for a while now and I don't think I ever used it before so I was equally glad to have made good use of it.
The shades of red are Cherry Cobbler and Riding Hood Red and please believe me when I tell you that this is really much better looking IRL!
Do you think I could get away with doing this same card but on let's say - two shades of blue and gold (or silver), or two shades of purple and metallic? Or are blue and purple poinsettias out of the realm of possiblity?
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....... let me think on that a little.
