Season's Greetings

Hello Everyone,

It has been awhile since my last post. Things have been busy and as most of you know, the magic of the Holidays had to happen somehow... But I'm back, and today I have an inspiration card using your MHKDesigns digital stamps and papers. Here is my card for today, enjoy.

Winter seems to be a gray and dank season.
However, I believe during this time is when color has the opportunity to pop!
This is what I tried to illistrate with this card.

MHKDesigns vintage images work so well with each other.
I invite you to check out her Etsy store and see for yourself
the versatility of stamp sets and variety of digital papers we have to offer

I printed out two copies of the poinsettia. I colored one poinsettia, cut it out, then placed it on the base poinsettia. That is how its leaves are matching gray.

Left/Below: Pops of red seem to pop off the page. Leading your eye all around the card.
Right/Bottom: Of winter does have some sparkle. I choose to depict it by punching out glittery some snowflakes.


I encourage you to stop by the MHKDesigns blog to see more inventive ideas from our design team, and then play along with our monthly challenge, or just enjoy a bit of eye candy.

There is a lot more to discover at MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! Stop on over and see what we have to offer. It is certain to spark the imagination. So, thank you for stopping by and hope to see you soon. Take care and happy crafting.

All the best,

Hello Shawna!
This card is so amazing !! Connection gray and cold red is an excellent idea! Flower instantly caught my eye, but for the moment I saw the other elements that emerged from the gray as the thick fog !! I love adding a dimension to the snowflakes! Wonderful Christmas card! You inspired me this beautiful card.

Happy New Year, Shawna, my dear friend.
hugs,
Bozen
