Christmas Blues

It's quite traditional to combine blue and silver on Christmas cards to give a sparkly, snowy effect but I rather like the richer combo of a darker blue and gold, which I've used here.

(Eek! now I've uploaded the photo I can see that the sentiment is all skew-whiff, must go and correct that!)

I die cut the label shape and covered it with tree-patterned tissue, then added trees cut with snippets of gold and an old Hunkydory blue and gold foiled card, a gold die cut reindeer and lots of peel off snowflakes.  The tree dies were a win from the Snippets Playground.

I am sharing this with

Jingle Belles - Blue  
Winter Wonderland - favourite colour combo


  1. Fabulous card Jane - and I do agree about the deep blue and gold together, they look so rich and very Christmassy as well. Lovely to see you using those tree dies - and very cleverly without the stamps as well!

    From your comment in the Playground, are you playing for both parts of the prize or just the cats? Aren't those stamps great - in fact, like you, I could buy them all!

  4. A very bold Christmas card, the colours work really well together to give a rich feel and the snowflakes give a little bit of extra Christmassy feel :)
