Let's Have Some Merry

Reminder: The One-Layer Simplicity Challenge is up and running! Make your peace card for the Peace Be with You theme and share it over there before November 24th, 2016!

A year or maybe two ago, several kind readers sent me some die cuts of words, which I have largely hoarded. Today, it was time to use one of them.

card size 3.5" x 7.25"

The die cut is out of lime card stock, so I used a darker green to stamp the wreath and pink for an unexpectedly preppy look.

Some people dislike nontraditional colors for Christmas cards. Others love to experiment. I'm sitting on the fence and dabble my toes on both sides.

That's the joy of the middle. You can lean one way, then the other, and the view from the fence is really quite lovely.

In retrospect, I probably should have kept all the bling hot pink, but whatever. I love this fun and funky Christmas card!

And it's thanks to the kindness of readers that I have die cuts to hoard play with at all. Thank you!

stamps: Papertrey A Wreath for All Seasons
ink: Archival leaf green, vibrant fuchsia
paper: Papertrey white
accessories: rhinestones, die cut (Papertrey, I think)


  1. You have tickled my hot pink fancy with this lime green and hot pink card!

  2. I like the non-traditional colors.

  3. Just got that wreath & you've inspired me to ink it up!


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
