Good morning friends! I thought I would take an about turn with colors and meander through the cool tones of winter with slate blue, cool white and silvery accents. The drum of Christmas is in the distance so a Christmas card was the order of the day. I started out with Spellbinders Reindeer and Sleigh – the reindeer is so elegant. The backdrop I used is two cuts, tilted and overlapped using Spellbinders Blooming Collection. On top of that I added a square cut with Spellbinders Triple Floral then on top of that I added a silver element using Spellbinders Classic Squares LG. It just so happened that I could pull through the edges of the Blooming Collection Motif that was on the bottom and it sits just above my square for a frilly accent behind the reindeer. To finish, I added a bow, some little pearls and a sweet little holiday sentiment from Quietfire Design from the Tiny Christmas Wishes set using Spellbinders Petite Pennants.
I love the look of the tilted square and decided even though it makes the card wider that I’ll use an oversized envelope or padded envelope for sending. I may try this one again trimming the corners of the square flush with the edges :-)
