Non-Traditional Christmas Color Card

Happy Wednesday!

Well, I had a new pack of Colorbok (Dena's Closet Retro Collection) Christmas paper and a set of Our Craft Lounge (Jolly Ornaments) stamps that were screaming to be used together! I love creating with non-traditional Christmas colors.

I used SU Old Olive and Regal Rose paper and ink. The ornament was stamped twice and attached with thread between the two pieces so it spins.



Here is the inside of the card:



And a close up of the bottom:


I don't know if you can see it, but I punched a few snowflakes and adhered them randomly with pop dots. I figured the white 'snow bank' would be perfect for addressing the card. The snowflake paper is the reverse side of the ornament paper.
I'm entering this card in the Memories of Time sketch challenge and the CSAYL challenge #42.
Thanks for stopping by. I wish you a very crafty day.

This is a very fun holiday card. I like the pink instead of traditional red.
