I'm excited to be answering the Design Team Call for The Robin's Nest. The idea for my project submission started with my desire to create Christmas cards in non-traditional colors. I also wanted to use the great Santa face rub-on available through The Robin's Nest.
While brainstorming ideas on what I wanted my project to look like, I thought about my favorite color combination - green and purple. This is what I came up with...I love the look. :D
- Fleur Green Olive/Stripe Green Olive
- Spring Green
- Getaway Glitter Swirl
- Distressed Plum/Water Color Plum
The Santa and Holly are also from The Robin's Nest product line of Christmas Rub-Ons. Poinsettias and one card are embellished with Dew Drops from the Winter Retreat collection by The Robin's Nest.
Additional tools and supplies used include
- Layered Poinsettia Die - Spellbinders
- Crystal UltrafineTransparent Glitter - Art Glitter
- Moss Green Glitter - Glitter Ritz
- SVG Cut files:
- One-Piece Boxes, Box 1, Accent Top (Used for card base for all cards)
- One-Piece Boxes, Box 3, Accents
- Santa's Visit, Quick Box, White Accent
You can download free printable detailed instructions for each card at http://shortonideas.net/111112shortchristmascards.pdf These instructions include sizes of paper, as well as step-by-step assembly instructions. If you have any questions as you recreate these cards, leave a comment below, and I will be glad to respond.
After completing my cards, I had lots of Rub-Ons left over...so they provided a quick way to finish the cards with inside accents.
These cards are simple, yet the paper collection and vintage Santa face bring an elegance to this simple card.
