...Or, how to turn any color combo into a Christmas card!
The base is layered with Elegant Eggplant, Early Espresso, and Very Vanilla. The Vanilla base is stamped with En Francais and sponged with Early Espresso. Tuck a strip of Early Espresso ribbon centered over the Vanilla.
Next, the frame from Papaya Collage is stamped with Early Espresso, fussy cut, and sponged on the outside edges with Elegant Eggplant, and from the center to halfway across the frame with Old Olive. Then comes the fun part!
The focal image is as follows:
Early Espresso 2-1/8" x 2-7/8"
Very Vanilla 2-3/4" x 2"
Stamp "Peace on Earth" on Vanilla Base. The bottom edge of this image should be at the halfway point, to leave room for Baby Jesus.
Emboss the Very Vanilla with (super yummy) Sugar & Spice Heat Embossing Powder, using the star from First Christmas and clear VersaMark ink.
Sponge from the outside in with More Mustard, concentrating on the star image and leaving the bottom half lighter, but sponge all the edges. Sponge edges only with Early Espresso.
Your sky will look lit up now!
Finally, stamp Baby Jesus onto a Very Vanilla scrap with Elegant Eggplant, and fussy cut. Sponge the edges with Elegant Eggplant. Adhere as shown with Tombo Multi glue.
The frame and the focal image are adhered to the card with Dimensionals.
I think this color combo makes this Christmas card look perfectly regal, as it should <3 !
