A Simple Holiday Card

Today I bring you a holiday card using non-traditional colors.  I love the simplicity of this card...the layout, the color combo and the snowflakes stamped all over the card stock without any rhyme or reason.  When I first started this card, I decided that I wanted to use some non-traditional holiday colors and grabbed my Color Coach to get my creativity flowing.  Once I saw the Old Olive and Raspberry Ripple combination, I knew that I wanted to add a third color.  Using Midnight Muse seemed to be just the right color choice for the card base.  After coming up with the color combination of Old Olive, Raspberry Ripple and Midnight Muse, I began to stamp the different sized snowflakes in the three colors all over my Whisper White card stock layer.  The best thing about using a layout like this is the fact that you don't have a pattern to follow so you can add the stamped images wherever you feel there is something missing.  I chose to add the tiny Midnight Muse snowflakes wherever I felt there was too much white space.

This card was so simple to make and it didn't need to be exact when replicating it that this card layout would be perfect for a holiday card.  You can line up a bunch of Whisper White layers and stamp your snowflakes in an assembly fashion.  This would reduce the time you spend creating your holiday cards this year.  Enjoy!

Tip: Stamp your greeting first so your stamped images will not cover up your words.
