Christmas Greetings–Color Throwdown Challenge #518


Hello and welcome to another Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lynn is our hostess and she has chosen a gorgeous color palette based on her warm and cozy inspiration piece.


But instead of a warm and cozy design, I went with snowflakes in unconventional colors. I was totally inspired by these cards from Kristina Werner, and I used MFT’s Layered Snowflakes Die-namics and Let It Snowflake Too Die-namics. I probably could have used gold glitter card stock instead of the orange but I do like these colors together.

I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then popped up another panel of Sweet Tooth card stock with foam tape. I cut a bunch of different Layered Snowflakes Die-namics and Let It Snowflake Too Die-namics from three colors of glitter card stock (see below), then arranged them like I wanted, three in a pile, and adhered them together.


I then adhered them to the card front, heat embossed the sentiment from Snow Globe Sentiments on Heavyweight Translucent Vellum, and finished off with some Sparkling Clear Snowflake sequins paired with challenge color sequins.

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 CTD518 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd518 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, along with our super talented November Guest Designer, Caly Person!
