CMCC #51 Colour Me Merry

Good morning! 

It's a busy day here in the Johns household but I just wanted to share a card that I made for the Colour Me card challenge that is challenging us with a beautiful color combo! 

I really really really love these colors together. I love the darker reds and greens for Christmas so these colors were right up my alley! My Always Artichoke and Real Red stamp pad hasn't been used in so long that they were pretty dry. I had to use some elbow grease to get them stamping crisp.

I cut out the tree silhouette using my Cameo machine (Design ID #5027) with Baked Brown Sugar card stock. I then chose 3 sentiments from a Winnie & Walter stamp set called Happy Christmas. If you've followed my blog the past month you know that I love this stamp set! It has so many amazing sentiments for the Christmas season. I masked the tree and stamped the sentiments in the shape of the tree using red and green ink. To highlight the tree, I sponged the edges with Baked Brown Sugar and it really helped it pop! 

Originally I wasn't going to make this a shaker card but it just kind of happened. Sequins have a hold over me when it comes to making a card and I'm not upset at all about it. Once the card was all put together I decided to add some decorative ribbon at the bottom of the tree. It's a pretty CAS card that was a lot of fun to make. 

Hope you enjoyed this card for today. Please leave me a comment letting me know what you think and if you have any questions. As always, the products used will be listed and linked below.
