Hello and welcome to the MFT Design team Challenge! Red and green are beautiful and traditional colors but also, a bit predictable this time of year. This month, MFT has challenged the team to think outside the box by applying non-traditional color schemes to their Christmas crafting. Modernize your holiday with an unexpected pop of color!
And guess what color I chose? Purple! I'm a big fan of traditional Christmas colors, but I love to use non traditional colors as well in my Christmas cards and decorations!
So for this card, I lightly watercolored a piece of watercolor paper with purple watercolors for the background. When this was dry, I mounted it to a smooth white card base. I cut the snowflakes from the Let it Snowflake die and glued them down flat. I stamped the flowers and leaves in Wild Wisteria, Lavender Fields, Grapesicle, and Grape Jelly, and cut them out with the matching dies. I mounted all of these onto the card with foam tape.
I stamped the sentiment from The Toasty Greetings stamp set onto a flag banner die from Blueprints 18 and added that with foam tape, just under the edge of the top flower. I added a few PPP sequins to the centers of the flowers and a few scattered around.
There you have it! Very non traditional colors, but I love them! Make sure you stop by the MFT blog to see what all the other designers have come up with!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
