Christmas Card Challenges #5

Our Challenge to you this week at Christmas Card Challenges is a Color Challenge ~ Winter Wool

These were such soft colors to play with. I had made a card a while ago using similar colors at a friends house, although that card was not a Christmas Card.  So, I CASE'd (Copy & Share Everything) Gerri Kowalski's card (shown at the end of this post) to create my Christmas Card version.

Double off-set stamping, heat embossing and a bit of sponging helped to create the focal point of this card.

Not my typical Christmas card colors, but I love the elegance and softness of this card. I might use these colors more often.

Stop by the Christmas Card Challenges blog to see what the other DT members created. We all love it when you stop by and let us know what you think.

The card below is the card I made at Gerri Kowalski's house a couple years ago. I've been wanting to CASE it and finally had the chance to do so. Thanks for the inspiration Gerri.

Products used: Watercolor Winter Stamp set and Embossing Folder by Stampin' Up!
