This week’s Global Design Project is a color challenge, and I decided to use the soft colors (Balmy Blue, Pear Pizzazz, and Petal Pink) for a Christmas card.

Santa Ornament


I began by using the largest Layering Circles Die to cut a circle of Thick Basic White Cardstock. Using a Blending Brush and Balmy Blue Ink, I created a smooth surface for my ornament. 

Next, I used a Giving Gifts Die to cut Santa and his reindeer from Thick basic White Cardstock, and snipped them free from the rectangle included in the die-cut. They fit perfectly across the widest part of the circle.


The background is a beautiful layer of Pear Pizzazz greenery, cut with a large Christmas Pinecone Die, from Subtles 6″ X 6″ Designer Paper, I glued this to the Thick Basic White card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″) with tiny dots of Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, “Happy Holidays,” is from the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set, stamped in Pear Pizzazz Ink, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die.

I hung my Santa ornament with gorgeous, Petal Pink, Organdy Striped Ribbon.



Now, it’s your turn to use this beautiful color combo, and hang your card in our gallery.
