Merry Christmas–Color Throwdown Challenge #523


Hello and welcome to another Color Throwdown Challenge! This one is hosted by Broni and will be the last on of 2018. The Design Team is taking the rest of the month off to enjoy the holidays but we’ll be back on January 2nd to kick off 2019!

I need wind down the Christmas cards so this is one of the last of the year :( I decided to stamp on Kraft and I’m liking how it turned out. I started with a Kraft card stock base and added some Black & White Stripes Paper Pack across the bottom. I worked on a trimmed Kraft panel and stamped the greenery from Hand-Lettered Holiday Greetings  Stamp Set (I’ve really gotten good use out of these images this year!) along with the berries to create a wreath.


The sentiment is from Trio of Trees Stamp Set and was stamped with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink, then the panel was popped up on the base with foam tape. I finished off with a black & white baker’s twine bow to tie things together. CAS and I like it.

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 CTD523 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd523 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 Guest Designer, Davina Cantrell!
