Christmas time is just around the corner and with all the lovely traditional cards about sometimes it is fun to do something different. There are lots of ways to create great Christmas cards using stamp sets and techniques not usually associated with the traditional scenes in greens and reds.
Today I challenged myself to make some alternative cards in non traditional colours and I chose to use the Timeless aTextures stamp set which is really very versatile at creating gorgeous backgrounds.
A created an arora borealis background building up layers with stamping and sponging, then misting with water to give a blustery snowy feel. I embossed the sentiment and the swirl stamp to add even more texture. Love the look of this card.
The second is a girly card with gold and pink and blue combo using flirty flamingo and pool party with a touch of Bermuda bay.
