Hi, crafty friends. I’m sharing an untraditional Christmas card today, using untraditional colors for our friends down under. This Christmas Kangaroos image is brand new from Rachelle Anne Miller, and it’s so cute with the little joey holding a candy cane.
I love teal for Christmas cards. I actually love teal for anything, but it’s the perfect color to pair with the dreaded traditional red. I’m not a fan of complementary colors, so red and green don’t really work for me, but red and teal totally do. As does red and light blue, or red and grey, but that’s pretty much my entire list for what goes with red at Christmas. I’m weird, I know.
I decided to pair my teal with a bright pink and used the RV Copic family for the candy cane and all the flowers.
Once my coloring was done I used the Notebook Edge die from My Favorite Things to die cut from the left hand side of the panel. Below the image, I stamped a sentiment from the Holiday Messages stamp set from Mama Elephant using Hawaiian Shores Ink from Papertrey Ink.
I mounted the panel onto a top fold cardbase I created from Hawaiian Shores cardstock from Papertrey Ink. I love it when my colors are a match, and the teal of the cardstock goes well with the teal combo I used for the image.
I thought about adding some sort of embellishment to the card, but in the end, I decided to keep it simple.
Not a whole heap of Copics used for this one.
