Embellish Challenge - Noel

I thought I'd play along with the Embellish Magazine Holidays Color Challenge, which uses these colors as inspiration:

This is what I came up with:

I had a lot of fun using these colors; not ones I'd usually think to use for holiday cards. But I think they worked well, especially with the homespun feel of the stamp images. Lots of Cuttlebugging on this one - this Herringbone folder has been getting a real workout lately! It's hard to see in the pic (since it's so tiny), but the reindeer has an itty-bitty rhinestone for a nose (I colored it with a Sharpie to match the sentiment ink color). I thought it helped tie the colors together nicely. TFL!

Card Supplies:
Stamps: Martha Stewart; Ink: ColorBox pigment "Chestnut," Ink It Up! pigment "red;" Patterned Paper: DCWV; Accessories: Cuttlebug / Herringbone embossing folder / circle Nestabilities; rhinestone, Sharpie, corner rounder punch, foam dimensionals


  1. This is so chic, Lisa! You used those colours perfectly.

  2. This is terrific! Love the herringbone mixed with the diamonds, and I'm always a sucker for an aperture.

  3. LOVE IT! Your card makes me want to run to my craft room to see if I have the Herringbone CBF (and buy it if I don't). Is a person a hoarder if they don't even know what they own? Thanks so much for playing along with Embellish!

  4. the card is simple, clean and beautiful! love it

  5. Oh, this is beautiful! I love the embossed background over a patterned paper! Thanks for playing along with us!
