Last week I made a card that had a forest of pink and purple trees, Today I have a card that also has a color twist. Today it is blue pine boughs and mistletoe. As You See It Challenge #287 asks the card maker to use earthy and blue tones to make a masculine card. You also had to incorporate twine and die cuts on your card. I chose Crumb Cake, Balmy Blue and Night of Navy, along with the colors in the DSP as my color scheme to work with Day 17 of #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallengeWhen I started this card, I was not at all sure it would work. I went into it prepared to scrap it. In the end I was very pleased with how it turned out.
I tried a few different background layers before I settled on this piece from Painted Christmas DSP. I am down to my final scraps of this paper.
I backed the DSP with Night of Navy and layered it onto a Crumb Cake card base.
The sentiment from Christmas Pines was stamped with Night of Navy ink onto Crumb Cake card. It was cut using Tailor Made Dies. The tag was tied with a few strands taken from the Silver Threaded Twine.
The remaining elements were cut using the Pretty Pines dies.
