Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia!

Hello, crafty friends! I am excited to be a part of a very special blog event!
 
Advent Calendar Extravaganza is -the- festive event of the season! This ‘hop with a twist’ was dreamed up by Taheerah Atchia and features surprise destinations each day! Joining in the fun with Taheerah are over 60 special guests - each serving up some fantastic Christmas inspiration!
Just like an Advent Calendar, you’ll never know where you’re going to be visiting next until you ‘open the door’!

Join in the fun every day at taheerah-atchia.com to see what special surprises wait behind the door!
 

When I first saw this Christmas color combination a few years ago, I was not so sure about it. It was definitely different than the traditional Christmas colors. But over the years, the red, pink and lime green combo is growing on me. Today I am using DCWV and Joy Clair products to create this card.


I actually used the DCWV DIY Project Stack Baby Girl for the papers to make this card. I used fun prints to cover the card base and the panel. The green chevron print is attached to a red cardstock mat. The sentiment is stamped on a printed strip of paper. I used bright, festive holiday chipboard stickers to add texture and dimension to the card.

  37. So funny about the colors, because I used to only like traditional Christmas colors myself, and now I am gravitating towards more untraditional combos like this, or teal, pink, Aqua! I love how you used the color and the chevrons on this card, it is eye catching and retro fun! Thanks for participating in this hop, I am having a blast seeing who is on the other side of the door each day and what they have created.

  38. I absolutely non-traditional colors for Christmas, particularly pink, aqua and lavender. Actually, they're probably more retro as I remember seeing aluminum trees in those colors -- so beautiful! And so very expensive now! Thank you for the lovely inspiration!
