Joy to the World - Color Throwdown Challenge #660


Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Wanda is our hostess this week and she has a gorgeous color combo for us based on her equally gorgeous inspiration piece!

I had not had a chance to use the recently released Stitched Tall Triangles STAX Die-namics nor the super fun Keep Me in Stitches Patterned Paper so I got them both out for this card. It went together pretty quickly and once one was done, I think it would be a great design for mass production. 

To begin, I cut the triangles--or in this case, trees--from three colors of patterned paper then I spattered them an some Blue Beyond card stock with diluted white craft paint and set them aside. While they were drying I cut Sweet Tooth card stock with Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics and Joy, Peace, & Love Die-namics from Gold Sparkle card stock. 

The blue background was adhered on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape, then I added the back snow drifts, directly to the background and the "trees" were popped up on foam. Before I adhered the front drift with foam, I heat embossed a partial sentiment from Bitty Holiday Wishes Stamp Set with gold detail embossing powder then popped it, the Joy die cut letters, and the star on top up on foam for the finish!

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 #CTD660 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd660 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there!
