Festive foliage …

Hello and welcome to my blog. There’s another cracking card challenge over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week. I think this would make a perfect card for my husband, with the masculine colours and simple design …

Festive foliage

Crumb cake cardstock for the base, with old olive and whisper white accents – it was all about the textures with this one, from the woodgrain embossed background, to the foliage itself. Silver glimmer paper provided festive sparkle, and baker’s twine some softness too.

  1. Love this card. The simplicity is amazingly minimalist and it works ! Bravo !

  2. I think the colours and texture are just perfect. The woodgrain background with the die cut foliage is lovely and I do like the shimmer one the word snow. Fab work. Deborah xx

    • Thank you for your lovely comments Deborah. I had my husband in mind when I made the card, hence the woodgrain background and colours chosen, but even he likes a little sparkle and glitter at Christmas so the glitter card worked well xx

  3. This is beautiful – so elegant too – Jacqueline xx

  4. Quel joli design Gill, le fond bois est si beau et ton bouquet de branches est charmant, biz
