Cerise and Cyan

So here is my next DT blog for Christmas Fun...
and the theme is non-Christmas colours!
I hope you will pop over to our Challenge Blog and add your designs!!

I decided to go for a cerise and cyan collection...using lots of polka dots!

I used the 'positive' and 'negative' of two dies to make this set of cards.

Firstly I used Sizzix 'Phrase, Merry and Bright" cutting it out with cyan cardstock and cerise DP. I then layered them up as shown, onto square white card blanks - all the papers and cards were just from my stash. To finish I added some gems and bows.
I am also submitting this second card to Clear it out Challenge - Layer it up

 My second two cards used the Sissix Tree, Christmas w/Decorations.
Firstly I just added the tree and decorations to a coloured card base, just adding fine glitter and the bows - very simple!

Secondly I trimmed the 'negative' and added it to a white card base matted with cyan textured paper. This time I 'framed' the tree with pearls and added the bows.

I am also submitting this card to

Happy Crafting!
