Christmas Colors but not a Christmas Card

Hiya Stampers!

The title will make sense when you see my card, lol😉

Today’s card is for the Color Challenge over at SplitCoast Stampers. The colors are very Christmas-y and I intended to make a Christmas card because they are also doing a monthly challenge to make Christmas cards for the month of July.

Here’s the color combo they gave us to work with:

Here’s what I came up with:

It took me a couple of days to make this card because I would get busy getting creative then have to stop to do something else. Then try to get my mojo going again. I had chosen a Christmas sentiment and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder, as you can see that’s not the same sentiment I ended up with on this card.

Here’s a close up:

I lost the original die cut embossed sentiment that I had ready to go. I looked around and never found it among all the mess in my craft room. I honestly didn’t feel like embossing again. I had everything else done for the card, so I just picked a sentiment from the same stamp set. So, hence the title name….it LOOKS like a Christmas card, but it’s NOT a Christmas sentiment! oy-vey!

Here’s another view:

I still like how it turned out so hopefully the recipient won’t notice the Christmas-y card with no Christmas sentiment, lol! Gotta laugh at yourself from time to time.

Anyways, I’ve been having a lot of fun being on the guest design team for this month, I get to make two more cards for July! I do hope you like my card for this color combo even though I messed up the sentiment and was too lazy to redo it. I’m just gonna go with the flow, it’s not the end of the world afterall.

*UPDATE on my nephew*

My nephew was in a serious car accident and had died on the way to the hospital, he almost lost his leg…..has numerous injuries as well. He has been recovering very well. He is out of ICU and they have moved him to a long term rehab facility. He will not be able to walk on his injured leg for 3 months, but Praise God he is alive! I thank you for your prayers and I ask you to continue to pray for him as he has a long road ahead of him for recovery.  Thank you so much, the power of prayer is real!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed evening ❤

  1. this is so pretty Holley- bold and bright- I don’t think the recipient will notice the Christmas colors at all – I lose things all he time in my craft room- can never figure out where they disappear – thanks for the update on your nephew
