At first glance I don’t think this cards looks all that Christmassy. Hmm Christmassy made it through spell check!
When I was making this card I was a bit unsure where it was going. You see I was working on Christmas cards and ran out of the cardstock I was using with the patterned paper I had. I had a little bit left so went searching for another matching cardstock and came up with this turquoise-aqua paper. It matched but was not a color that said Christmas to me.
The cardstock in person is a bit more aqua than I could get the picture to show. I find aqua is a hard color for me to get a true to lift color when I’m taking pictures. I tried may different locations and just can’t seem to find the perfect spot.
Who would have thought that a card could be both bright and muted?
I think the brown distressing toned down the bright cardstock and helped make this card of of my favorites. I’m like that sometimes, the stranger the color combination, the more I like it.
Last year I made a few pink Christmas cards. What is your most unusual color you’ve used for your holiday cards?
