... my first Christmas card for the year

How cool is this, my first Christmas card made in February?!?!
I am not going to have a last minute rush like last year!!!

The gorgeous patterned paper is from the Kaisercraft Blue Bay 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" Paper Pad.

This card was made with a colour challenge in mind, the link is attached below.
The colours for the challenge are coral, lime and aqua, so I used American Crafts weave cardstock in Salmon (coral), Limeade (lime) and Mediterranean (aqua), along with the aqua in the patterned paper.
The layered wreath is from the Winnie & Walter In Bloom - Paulina's Greenery Cutaways.  They are such fun to mix 'n match and layer together.  I used some Salmon cardstock and included one delicate layer of a darker coral shade for contrast.

I layered some of the sprigs of leaves from the Winnie & Walter In Bloom - Paulina's Greenery Cutaways together at the top of my wreath and popped some sequins on top.  The sequins are Lime 6mm & 12mm sequins by Maria George.
I die cut "merry" using the Winnie & Walter In A Word - Merry Cutaway in Salmon cardstock.
I don't have any W&W Christmas sentiments, so I die cut "christmas" from the Paper Smooches Christmas Words 2 Dies set using Salmon cardstock.

I have never used this colour combo before and I am so glad that I joined this colour challenge, as they look delightful together.  I hope you like them too.

I am going to enter my card in the following challenges:


Belated 2nd Birthday Bash Challenges

- the challenge is to use coral, lime & aqua together

- not sure if I'm stretching things too much, but I used two W&W cutaways,
W&W In Bloom - Paulina's Greenery Cutaways
W&W In A Word - Merry Cutaway


  1. Very pretty, you could tuck some white pearls on there and make it look like mistletoe

  2. Cool Christmas card design, Tracy. Love the color combos.
