Christmas in the Heart CCMC214

I'm playing with my Scentsational Season stamps and Holiday Collection Framelits again; this time I used the polka-dot Christmas tree stamp.  I really like this coordinating bundle of products, and as a bonus, these two items can be purchased together for a savings of 15% over purchasing them individually!
 
2012 Create Challenges-030I used the Color Challenge CCMC214 from Create with Connie and Mary for this card:  Gumball Green, Midnight Muse and Daffodil Delight, which is not-so-traditional for Christmas but I do like it for the design.  The Heart of Christmas single stamp was colored with Gumball Green and Midnight Muse Stampin' Write Markers to get the two-color look, stamped on Whisper White cardstock then diecut with a Framelit from the Apothecary Accents Collection.  I cut an additional Framelit from Daffodil Delight, cut it in half horizontally and layered it on the back of the greeting.  The Daffodil button tied with Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine is from the Brights Collection.

  
The trees were stamped in Gumball Green, stars in Daffodil Delight and both were then diecut with their coordinating Framelit from the Holiday Collection (#127814, Holiday Catalog). 
I LOVE the new Woodgrain Embossing Folder!!  I can tell already that I'm going to use this a LOT!  I used it on the Midnight Muse cardstock background and love both the visual and tactile texture it provides.  The card base is Daffodil Delight.

I love how you took some non-Christmas colors and created one fantastic Christmas card! The woodgrain background gives this some lovely texture and the two-color stamped sentiment matches perfectly with the trees and button! Thanks for joining us at Create With Connie and Mary!

I would not have thought to use these colors for Christmas but they work so nicely with this card. I love the woodgrain in the background. I just got mine and I'm ready to pull it out today and start using it. I'm so glad you joined our challenge this week at Create with Connie & Mary.
