A Very Merry Christmas–CTD #367


Hi, there, and welcome to this week’s Color Throwdown! My girl Jodi has chosen a FABULOUS color combo for us this week—I just LOVE it!! So festive!

And, since I haven’t made a shaker card this week that’s what I did ;-) I do love me a shaker card. This one started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. My shaker element was made with More Sweet Tooth card stock, some heat resistant acetate, the just released Stitched Cover-Up Companion – Horizontal Die-namics and some foam mounting tape and filled with some Pretty Pink Posh Sequins and seed beads. I used the bottom section for actual shaker part. The sentiment was stamped with Delicata Gold pigment ink and is from BB Toasty Greetings, also just released.


My gorgeous poinsettias and holly leaves are from another new set, Winter Warmth and Winter Warmth Die-namics. Don’t you just love them? I popped them up on some foam mounting tape and added more sequins for the center.

And that’s it from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD367 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd367 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week, including our incredibly talented November Guest Designer, Karolyn Loncon!
