Christmas Lamp Post

Julie Warner -

For the Color Challenge (CC403) on Splitcoast, we are to use green, red & gray. My CAS card is a lot of white, green, a little red and a tiny bit of gray. Actually, I only used the gray to shade the lamp post.

The images are all new from DRS Designs. For the rest of my card, I die cut a couple of flourished holly out of the green then used the negative, or leftover part for my background. The large white frame was also a leftover from cutting a larger label shape out for another card.  I used markers to color the rubber of the sentiment in two colors, and the rest of the sentiment says “and the happiest Happy New Year” so I put that part on the inside since I could only fit this much on my little die cut label. The lamp post was colored w/ copics and cut out. I just love the traditional Christmas colors and festive look of the sentiment and lamp post.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
