PP545 Season's Greetings

Hi everyone!  Happy Sunday to you!  Our church is finally getting together today for our first picnic since 2019!  Praying for no rain....clouds are okay, but just no rain!  Claire is our Paper Players hostess this week and she has a fun color palette for us!  While my first thought was a summer card, I went outside the box and decided to go Christmas!  Here's the palette:

And here is my bright and cheerful Christmas card:

I pulled out a Lawn Fawn stamp set and die, stamped the image in Memento Black, colored it with Blends, then cut it out.  The sentiment is also from Lawn Fawn; it was stamped in Memento Black and Versamark ink, using my Stamparatus to get perfect coverage, then heat-embossed with Black embossing powder:

That pretty scalloped die is a new one from SU called Scalloped it!  I added some matching sequins from my stash, a sentiment on the inside, and another card for my December stash is ready!  I am going to enter this at the Krafty Chicks, as it is Christmas week there too!

I hope you'll find some inspiration from Claire's pretty colors this week!  Be sure to stop by the Paper Players blog to see what the other designers cooked up, and share yours with us too!  Thanks for stopping by today!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

LeAnne, I just LOVE that you created a Christmas card with my color palette! I love all those sweet little ornaments and the polka dot background made me smile!

I love that cute row of colourful baubles - go you with the Christmas cards, you must have quite a little pile now!

This card makes me smile! And it makes me vow to start my holiday cards....sigh...never happens!

LeAnne, I hadn't thought about a Christmas card with these colors - but they are perfect! I love the olive polka dot - it's unexpected - and works so well with your ornaments. reminds me of snow falling around a Christmas tree.

Love, love, LOVE these colors for a Christmas card! Those little ornaments are darling and the sequins add the perfect sparkly detail. So fun!
