Muted pastel tones for a Christmas card

I was on Facebook last month and someone was asking what colours of Catherine Pooler inks should you use for Christmas cards, Party or Spa? Well, for me you can use both, but I guess most people will opt for Party as these are the bright colours. So I thought why not create a Christmas card with the Spa colour of inks. The colour scheme I went with use muted pastel tones for a Christmas card, I love how different it turned out from the regular colour combinations for Xmas cards.

muted pastel tones for a christmas card: creating a colour base

Start off by using Clay Mask ink pad to colour a piece of white cardstock with the direct to paper method. Die-cut from this card with one of the dotted rectangle dies from the Scallop & dots die set.

 In addition, also die-cut the scalloped die on either side of the rectangle out of white cardstock to layer up on a white cardbase. For the stamping, stamp a selection of the leave/berry sprigs from the Adorning Doves stamp set out of the following inks:

For the rest of the wreath, stamp the candles, bow, wreath and hanger out of the following inks:

Use the coordinating dies to cut out all the images ready for assembly.

Layered up the stamped images with foam pads to add dimension and variation. For the sentiment, heat emboss a sentiment from the stamp set in Gold embossing powder. Fussy-cut this out and adhere on to the front.
