Christmas In Non-Traditional Colors

Good Morning, Bloggers! I'm continuing my Christmas Card making, again, today! Have to get those Christmas Cards done, so I can get them in the mail!

For this card, I'm going with non traditional colors of pink, black and silver. The image is from Bugaboo Stamps, and is colored with Promarkers. I used some fun polka dot and striped papers, from my stash, as well as some embossed paper with splashes of silver, punched with a scalloped circle punch. I used my Crop-O-Dile to add metal eyelets down the sides, then threaded some silver metallic twine through them, lacing the twine up the card. The sentiments are from Sentiments 4 You and are punched with oval and scalloped oval punches. I attached the image, black and silver embossed circle and sentiments with foam mounting tape for added dimension and 3D effect. Shiny silver gem circles of bling were added in the top right and bottom left corners, to bling up the card. I used a clearstar gelly roll pen to add glitter and sparkle to the image.

This card is especially for my cousin because she lives life "outside of the box," so these non-traditional christmas colors are perfect for her.
