Creative Challenge: Non-Traditional Colors

Every month, we like to issue a new creative challenge to keep your minds sharp and your creative juices flowing. Since it’s so close to Christmas, we’ve decided to go with a festively inspired challenge: make a Christmas card using anything except traditional Christmas colors. Take a look at what we came up with!

For our Merry Christmas card, we started with a white card base and layered on a white panel embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. Then we die cut a few snowflakes in Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green, Petal Pink, Polished Pink, Shaded Spruce, and Sweet Sorbet. We adhered a sentiment and finished the card with some Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels, which added a touch of sparkle that we love at Christmas without competing with the colorful snowflakes.

For our Happy Hanukkah card, we chose a Basic White panel and die cut some “stars” into it. We backed that paper with Silver Foil, and then die cut a few candles in Starry Sky, adding some Crushed Curry flames. We made sure to arrange the candles with one slightly taller than the others, imitating the look of a menorah. We finished the card with a few Festive Pearls and a sentiment that we made with the Alphabest Stamp Set.

We loved this challenge because it really helped us think outside the box. What will you come up with this month? Don’t forget to share your creative projects on social media and remember to use #CreativeChallengeSU so everyone can see!
