This is my second week playing along with the Paper Cupcakes Design Team and this week the challenge is to make a Christmas card using non-traditional colors.
Well, you can’t get too much more non-traditional than pink metallic. There is red and green in the Eskimo Kisses Decorative Paper by BasicGrey, but I pulled out the pink and blue to use with Candy Cane Cupcake. One of our favorite shows is Cupcake Wars and this sweet treat makes me think of something you would see on there. Can’t you just see it, a mint chocolate chip cupcake with peppermint butter cream frosting and crushed chocolate bits sprinkled on top with a candy cane adornment. Ok, now my mouth is watering.
Most of this card is pretty straight forward. I used the Eskimo Kisses designer paper paired with Bashful Blue and the metallic pink card stock. I used an SRM sticker for the sentiment and added a sheer bow. I really like the final element. I cut out the border using a die from the Butterfly set from Spellbinders. What did I cut it out of???? The plastic packaging from the die. I store my dies on magnet sheets in my cabinet, so the packaging can be easily recycled. It adds a nice element without being too busy.
