One thing I love about the gorgeous Silver and Gold collection is that not only does it include traditional greens and reds for the holidays, but it also includes some less expected but just as beautiful colors. Of course it has silver and gold, but I love the unexpected chalkboard black, kraft, and robin’s egg blue colors as well. Here’s a holiday card I made focusing on some of the more non-traditional colors in the collection.
For this card I stuck with the blue, white, gold, and kraft colors. I love the soft feel of them when combined with the gold–perfect for the holidays. And the crisp white reminds me of newly fallen snow.
I used the Wreath Frame Die to house my die cut sentiment, drawing attention to it. Laurel wreaths are a hot trend to watch for this holiday season–love them! I embellished the wreath with some gold sequins for a little sparkle, and included a pop of red at the top with some twine and a gem. My sentiment combines three different fonts–a script font and two tall and skinny fonts. Combining different fonts is a great way to add visual interest to any project.
