CCMWF color prompt challenge for end of September 2018

Three Christmas cards made with a neutral color palette for non-traditional looks

Card #1:

Card #2:

Card #3:

The inspirational photo and color palette prompt issued by Ginny M at CCMWF:

I didn't have any of the taupe/beige color so I chose to go more yellow gold. This was a tough challenge for me! For 2 cards I included little duo photos of my husband and I that were printed in gray tones. The stamps were inked in black. A wide range of border stickers and decorative tapes were used that came close to covering all the colors in the prompt photo. On card #2, a section of gold napkin was used plus small parts from metallic gold dots on white napkin. For cards #1 and #2, a jagged edge pair of decorative scissors were used to cut out the tree focal cardstock shapes.

Hope you find something in one of the cards that you like. I'll be crafting lots this month. My goal is to get some more old vacation photos scrapbooked and I need to get more Thanksgiving cards made too. And then my hubby's birthday and my mom's are this month as well which can't be missed. 

Crafting in the heartland, Becca S


  1. Lovely cards Becca - love that you have included the photos on two of the cards

    1. Thanks, Maxine! I thought I'd do that for relatives who live out of state, so they could see a photo of us from this year. Printing them in gray tones helped fit into this color palette challenge, too!


My heartfelt thanks for visiting my blog.
