Paper Players #117

Posted on

Yes, it’s Monday again! The weekend really does go by way too fast. I did have a nice day yesterday. I had brunch with my friend Carol in the morning and we got to catch up and I also saw my buddy Sandy again. Yes, I even got some crafting done. Today’s post is for this week’s Paper Players Challenge. This week Jaydee has given us this color combo…

A very unusual combination but I do like to go outside my comfort zone! The base of my card is Night of Navy Card Stock. I embossed a piece of Cajun Craze with the Holiday Frame Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The images are form the Watercolor Winter Stamp Set and are 2-Step Stamped in Bravo Burgundy. I cut them out with my Paper Snips and adhered them with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the Window Frames. I cut a piece of Night of Navy and a piece of Very Vanilla out with the Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies. The Night of Navy piece is pierced using the Festive Paper-Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool. They are adhered to each other with SNAIL and to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the Greetings of the Season Stamp Set and is stamped in Bravo Burgundy and cut out with the Labels Collection Framelits Dies. I backed it with a piece of Night of Navy that I flagged and that too is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Now that the card is finished I really do like the bold color choices for this week’s Paper Players Challenge and I hope that you enjoyed it too. Thank you for stopping by and have yourselves a great day! πŸ™‚

  1. I probably would not have thought to use these colors for a Christmas card, but once again, you nailed it! Fabulous!

  2. Wow, I was kind of stumped with these colors and was thinking Autumn card. They worked great for a holiday card!

  3. Justin, I love that you went outside of the box and did Christmas! I love that you kept your card clean as it really lets the sentiment, focal element and layout shine. The embossing folder behind it really anchors the card. Love it! Glad you had such a great weekend and thanks for joining the Paper Players again this week.

  4. I love those colors! Good job with your use of them:)

  5. WOW, way to think outside the colors Justin! These colors rock as a holiday card and I love the burgundy poinsettia! Thank you for your faithful participation at The Paper Players!
