Christmas Card Throwdown: Merry Colors

I wanted to play along with the current 52 Christmas Card Throwdown before it ends this week because it such a classic color combo - green, kraft and white.  I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, but I saw in my not-yet-used stash that I had the Winter Wreath Decor dies from Pink & Main to go along with their wreath base.  I have all the seasons and thought I had used them all - but this one was still waiting. I must have run out of time at Christmas.  Given some of them such as the reindeer and the gingerbread man were perfect for kraft - and others like the snowman and the snowflake were perfect for white - it was meant to be!!

Christmas Card Throwdown Merry Colors

The sentiment is a Concord & 9th sentiment that I picked because it was bold enough to stand out from all of the detail on the wreath.  I did play around with adding some sparkle to the sentiment and various other elements, but I kept coming back to the classic look of the plain cardstock.

Thanks to the fine group at Christmas Card Throwdown for the inspiration.

  1. This is a wonderful card Kim. Very fresh, with all the white, and a slight rustic feel too. Very nice indeed. Thanks for joining in with the 52CCT this week.

  2. I agree with Lucinda about the rustic feel! You've created a terrific wreath focal and it's so cute to have the shapes tucked in too! Thanks for linking to 52 CCT! Becca/DT

  3. I love everything about this Kim, it's so pretty!
