This fortnight at Jingle Belles we're creating holiday cards which embrace only the neutral color palette: white, cream, ivory, ecru, black, gray, charcoal, obsidian, brown, tan, kraft, camel, oatmeal, sienna... ok, you get the picture! Use them all together, or chose just one hue and rock the monochromatic design. As long as it's NEUTRAL it's in. Need some texture to replace the missing color? There's burlap, jute, paper bags, cork, chalkboard, sandpaper, lace... so many choices!
Here are our Neutral Noel creations:
Stephanie says, "My card was inspired by Ardyth's Layered Tag Card Tutorial that she recently shared on SplitcostStampers. I used two Manila and one Kraft tag and tied them together using lots of non-holiday neutral items including three coordinated journaling cards, neutral hexagon tags and papers from Ciao Bella Blue Note Collection. I finished with three sizes of snowflake buttons, SRM Clear Stickers and Tim Holtz Holiday sentiment stickers. I used a die on the journaling card on the front card and attached it with foam tape created a side opening gift card pocket. You can click through to the blog to see the individual tags." Lauren says, "I combined a bunch of different browns and tans, with accents of silver and white. My focal image is once again an older Ciao Bella patterned paper; plus I've got some copper-enhanced specialty cardstock; silver metallic mats and diecut sentiment; rounding off with a few Eyelet Outlet Snowflake Brads and silver Star Sequins on a dark brown A7 card."
