14 October 2022 MTTCC #45 Theme Colors of Kraft Brown and White

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! Oh, Christmas Day 2022 is getting closer!!! Small amounts of other colors are allowed for the #45 Kraft Brown and White color theme challenge at My Time To Craft Christmas challenge blog. Competition runs October 14-27, 2022 starting at 12am CT/Chicago on the 14th and ending at the same time on the 27th. 

On the first card, I went for a more broadened allowance on the kraft and white color duo. I've got lots of pale blush pinks that are looking beige-ish. Some pinkish-burgundy on 2 die-cuts/ephemera and the bright blue textured specialty paper add some color contrast. For card 2 I've adhered closer to the kraft brown and white with some gold. 

#1: Celebrate the Season Christmas card=

design notes and vendors: paneling/barn siding cardstock is from Lake Life paper pad by Fancy Pants Designs; the Christmas print cardstock and ephemera are from Bo Bunny; other cardstocks/papers are stash items as well as the black ink used for edging, staples, and pale pink pearl gems

#2: Merry Snowflake Christmas card=


design notes and vendors: paneling is actually a vinyl wallpaper peel-n-stick scrap piece from an 11" x 16" piece found at Dollar Tree (YES!); it's on an A2 size white card base; white with gold dazzles from Paper Wishes website; gold snowflake is a Thicker/American Crafts; white glitter foam snowflake stickers and chevron burlap ribbon are also Dollar Tree finds!!!
