Lexi’s Creations #55 Non-traditional Christmas

Lexi Non Traditional Christmas

Lexi’s latest challenge is an non-traditional Christmas – no red or green.

It is a fairly easy theme to follow 'Christmas', the twist being you must not used the colours RED or GREEN.

You can make whatever you wish to, cards, notebooks, tags, bookmarks, 3D items, please remember to follow the theme to be fair to everyone. Most important of all have fun!

This challenge will last until 9th January as we are taking a break for the Christmas holidays.

We are sponsored by the fabulous image and the prize will be 5 of Lexi’s lovely digistamps.

I have used Lexi’s image of the spiral bauble christmas tree, and have coloured just the baubles in a purple sakura sparkly pen, which oddly looks black in the picture above.

I first printed out the image and then embossed and cut it with the gorgeous Marianne craftables cutting and embossing die, which I then matted onto purple shiny paper. The edge of the card was a plain bracket shaped edge and I ran just the edge through the BS with a CBug snowflake embossing folder, and then layered some more of the shiny purple paper just under the edge.

I am entering it into the following:-
