and here's what i made this time:
i mentioned last week that for anyone who's not a fan of the bright orange-- or perhaps just doesn't have much in the way of orange supplies-- there are a couple of ways to go: you can ignore the colors completely, and focus on selected elements like the tree, the fireplace, the presents, etc; OR you can just tone them waaaaaaaaaaay down. in actual fact, this card is closer, proportionally, to how much bright color is in that room compared with how much white + neutral there is. again, i've got nothing in the way of "holiday" supplies, except for that awesome memory box die, "marvelous pine". i do have a bunch of different whites-- including a whitish woodgrain and some white glitter paper for a bit of sparkle it's hard to see in the picture. my pops of vivid color come from washi tape, and i've put the entire panel onto a much softer orange background.
don't forget to hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and check out stephanie's second card; not to mention the amazing work that's already in our fab readers' gallery!
*someone on facebook last week pointed out that that the colors are kind of sherbet-ish... and i had to agree... yet another reason to love this inspo pic, eh? :)
