Happy hump day and welcome to Paper Pretties Wednesday challenge. Even though it's the middle of summer at Paper Pretties we're in a festive Christmasy kind of mood, well at least I am. This week's challenge is the last color challenge of the month and the color combination is "red and green". That's why I'm in a Christmasy mood, but you don't have to make a Christmas card, just use the color combination of red and green for whatever theme you'd like.
While Christmas is still on my mind if you're reading this and it's still July you have a chance to take advantage of the "Christmas is July" sale at the Paper Pretties store. Using the promo code CHRISTMAS you will get 50% of your entire order. So now's the time to stock up on any of those stamp sets you've been dreaming about and with that discount you don't have to feel guilty at all.
This is a fairly clean and simple design. For the challenge I put a touch of green on the snowman's hat and colored the bird red. The stamped image fit nicely into a Spellbinder's ornament die. At the top I used a real button for embellishment, so it's not post office friendly, if I were going to drop this in a mail box I'd have made a card stock button. However I don't mind a visit to the post office, so it can be hand cancelled. I found a patterned paper that was red and green and finished it off by stamping the sentiment in the corner.
Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties "Frosty - Clear"
ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
paper - Neenah "Classic Crest Brillaint White card stock; Teresa Collins "Spring Fling" patterned paper; Bazzill "Grenadine Red" card stock"
miscellaneous - copics; Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornaments die; baker's twine; button
