And I do mean merry when I saw this morning’s challenge! Crumb Cake or Sahara Sand and a red and green are my “go to” colors for holiday cards. And when I saw the lucky 13 Global Design Challenge – GDP013, I felt merry and lucky! I had just done a series of 4 cards in those general colors a couple of weeks ago so I could highlight quick and easy designs the first 2 weeks of December. We are all short of time and I appreciate any ideas to help get last minute cards done! And I was so delighted I had them done today! For the GDP013, I am submitting a really fast to make and colorful card for the holidays.
My card today uses the challenge colors of Real Red, Crumb Cake and Old Olive. With the Season of Cheer DSP I chose, I had to get creative to make the Crumb Cake work. I took the very talented Brian King’s idea of coloring your DSP(see his card “Magic of the Season” here) and did just that with a Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write marker on the tops of the ornaments. I am not sure it made a world of difference, but I like to think it did! I experimented with coloring in the blue ornaments with Crumb Cake but alas, that was not a great idea. The red dots on the banner are White Perfect Accents colored with a red Sharpie. I liked the shine on these better than a Candy Dot. Enjoy today’s fast & easy card and see what everyone is doing over at the Global Design Project!
