Project 364: Modern Nordic greetings for Christmas
I am playing around with Christmas ideas and I wanted to make some simple cards that featured these big Tim Holtz script greetings I bought earlier this year.
Last year I bought some Nordic-themed paper for a specific project and I have a bunch left over. I thought they would be a great backdrop to the greetings and, because they're so fun and patterned, very little else was needed.
I die cut all my greetings up front and then played around with what went where. Because the papers are so busy I decided to back them on some colored blocks - all scraps. Score.
The headline is a fun one, and all I added was some bling to dot the j and i in the greeting.
This one I kept really simple, not even adding the bling.
An alternative one here, I got a bit of a scummy glue stain on the 'snow' so I covered it in glitter. Bit weird, but I decided to go with it. It was better than the smudged glue stain!
Finally this one features a different sentiment, a Dieversions Let it snow die that I got much earlier this year. It is much smaller than the other ones so I used a small scrap of the green paper and cut down a small white card as a base, using a red card scrap with a corrgated scrap to make it stand out. Using scraps and creating some fun new things - WIN.
