Well Christmas might be over and done with but since I still have a good number of items in my un-posted archive (and this is one of them!) I thought I would share my Christmas card design! Well one of them anyway. This is the design that I made in bulk but I had a number of other one offs that I sent out too :)
The design is based on this one by my all time favourite papercrafting blogger Kristina Werner.
I started out just with the combination on the far right, then I ran out of those particular papers from the Dashing range of Designer Series Paper, so I tweaked it a little and made some more (far left) in a slightly different combo. Then I cranked out a few more in the Holiday Harmony range of DSP from the recently retired Spring Mini catalogue and although I really love the brightness of the Dashing papers, I think the design works equally well with the more traditional combination of colours.
Which do you prefer...?
