Christmas in July 2022 – Day 10

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 10 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m playing along in the Color Throwdown challenge using products sent to me by Penny Black.

First of all, I have to congratulate the CTD team for hitting 700 challenges! What an amazing achievement! This is one of my favourite challenges and I’m so happy I discovered it back in July 2016! I entered challenge 403 when I was new to sharing my work online and didn’t even have this blog!

The palette this week is orange, yellow, kraft and brown. Hmm, feels more autumnal than festive, doesn’t it…. but let’s see what I can do.

I decided make a slimline card using the Slimline Medley die set (51-718) which I cut from white cardstock. As I wanted some shading in each of the circular windows, I sponged my card base using Vintage Photo distress oxide and adhered the frame section using foam tape. I then cut the beautiful Berries die (51-712) three times and coloured with distress inks before adhering in place.

Finally I added a sentiment from the Hearts Come Home mini set (30-849).

I thought my card ended up looking more autumnal than I hoped and went back to add a few stickles to try to make it a little more festive, not sure if that really did the trick though!

Thanks for stopping by!
