Christmas Card #2



Hey there. Can you believe I have my second Christmas card done? It just kinda came together. The only thing I knew for sure was that I was using that silly tree. I had purple in mind but just couldn't get anywhere using it. But now that I have a completed layout in front of me, maybe I can try it in purple. As for this one, it would seem I'm a tad bit obsessed with my Baja Breeze, which is funny, cuz I almost never think, "ooh, let's start with blue!". I just find blue hard to work with. And out of all the new In Colors, this is not the one I thought I would fall in love with. Guess it's a good thing I got a whole pack of this stuff, cuz it's all over my Christmas cards this year. I really like how this one came out, but...I know, I've always got something poopy to say. No, I really do like this one, but I'm thinking maybe a more - um, big or more silvery ribbon? Bolder. Ha! I knew it would come to me. A bolder ribbon. Maybe. I don't know. I really like this one. It's one of the new ribbons Nichole just came out with. Hmm, maybe the wider silver sheer metallic one. Ok, now I'm just rambling. Anyway, let me know what you think, cuz I'll be making a bunch of these bad boys and you could be getting one. So, if you think it's gross, you better say something now! And yes, Angie, I know, you want one of each. =D I'll see what I can do.

Stamps: Snow Swirled (SU!), Ink: Baja Breeze (SU!), Brilliance Moonlight White (Tsukineko), Colorbox Black pigment, Paper: Papertrey white, Baja Breeze (SU!), Warm Steel (Paper Company), Accessories: Clear embossing powder (SU!), Silver edge ribbon (Papertrey), rhinestones

The name Baja Breeze sounds so tropical it's not something you would associate with Christmas. But the color itself with the silver and this swirly tree sure LOOKS like Christmas! It would also look lovely in purple. I love it.
