Beautiful card - the kraft really pops against the green. I will have to try embossing with black on kraft as I don't think I've tried that yet. Thank you for the inspiration this morning!

I am impressed that you managed to create a card that will work for three different challenges. Way to go!!! I am not sure that I am up for this much of a challenge, but am considering stretching myself by jumping in to one of the "challenge" pools after I move and get my new craft space set up. Any suggestions? Thanks so much for this amazing post.

Kristen Olsen said...

I love layers and your moose adds a wonderful touch of Christmas "animalism" to them.

Annalisa Young said...

Wow! Way to knock out a bunch of challenges all in one fell swoop! I'm so impressed. I like how you interpreted the pink and green of the color challenge into the brighter variants; it gives it a very mod look. And I love the connection between the snowflakes on the paper and the die cut gold snowflakes as well as how you tied in the kraft cardstock with the splatters on the back. At the risk of being too on the nose, this card really does look like it was made by a jazz musician; it's variations on a Christmas theme with a fun, modern vibe. Thanks for sharing your creativity and style with us!
