Hi everyone… I didn’t post yesterday, silly me. But I had a REALLY good read of the most recent National Geographic magazine AND worked outside. But… here’s a promised card done in Parakeet Party – one of the new In Colors. It may seem a bit bright, but I have to say, I really, really like it. :O)

C’mas Banners Bundle.1

The card base as you can see, is Parakeet Party with a die cut in the same color die cut with Candy Canes Dies and adhered to the card base with liquid glue. The next is a grouping created on the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP (Sweet Sorbet). Layers attached to the DSP are die cuts in Garden Green card stock, Lovely Layers Vellum, Soft Suede, and the berries are die cut from 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Glimmer Paper, Sweet Sorbet. The holly is stamped in both Garden Green ink & Parakeet Party ink on Basic White. The sentiment banner is stamped in Sweet Sorbet ink with the words in Garden Green ink. This was die cut with the Christmas Banner Dies and is on dimensionals. The fabulous die cut background is a die from the Candy Canes Dies, cut from Parakeet Party card stock and adhered with liquid glue to the same color card base. Isn’t that die wonderful? The Parakeet Party is a non-traditional color for Christmas, but I really like how it all ties together. Hubby is a conservative man and I wasn’t sure what he would think either, but he liked it a lot! The last touch for the card front was three Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins in white.

C’mas Banners Bundle, inside

For the inside… the pine frond stamp from the Christmas Banners stamp set, first in Parakeet Party, then in Garden Green on the basic white panel.

C’mas Banners Bundle.3

As you can see, the envelope got the same treatment: pine frond from the C’mas Banners stamp set, stamped first in Parakeet Party ink, then in Garden Green ink. What do you think of the colors? It’s hard to tell the Sweet Sorbet is not Real Red! And I have to say, I like the contrasts of color.
