This one takes its inspiration from Germany. I am frequently drawn to the blogs of German demonstrators; I love their clean, classy style, particularly at Christmas. The demonstrators whose blogs I follow employ this “scattered elements” look to great effect and are big users of Crumb Cake, Whisper White and Smoky Slate. It’s a tasteful but subdued colour palette which doesn’t lend itself well to CASEing for a colour combination challenge.
Undeterred, I had a go at adapting the style for this week’s Mix It Up Monday project and came up with this fun card for Christmas. I die-cut the large star using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits set, which also has a strip of tiny stars, which I used for the red and green stars. The stamped star is punched out with the Itty Bitty Punch Pack star punch.
And that’s it. Quick, clean and simple, with just a tiny hint of grey in the stamped background. Because, even though I love those German cards, I’m still not a big fan of grey.
