Pink and Green for Christmas with Guest Therese!

Catherine General

Guest Designer Therese Calvird really knocked our socks off with her cards featuring the Jolly Holly Bundle. She chose to go with a Pink and Green color combo which I am all for. Pink is definitely a trending color this year for Christmas, but in my book, it's ALWAYS TRENDING!

Therese used a primary color combo of Lime Rickey, Grass Skirt, Be Mine and Party Dress. She also focused on several heat emboss techniques on these cards. She shared a video over on her YouTube with all the details! Click here to view!

Therese embossed the Holly Jolly Word die giving some nice contrast on one of her cards. The shades of pink on her berries are so sweet and give a softer feel to the traditional red and green combo.

Using a direct to paper technique, she was able to make her own custom card stock to use on her cards backgrounds as well as to create her angled stripes background. I love how she added in some glitter to some of the stripes.

This green and pink twist on a candy cane stripe is too fun. The clean and simple mistletoe card is also a winner with the addition of the little pink bow and a few Vienna Sequins! Try these colors and techniques on your next card.
