52 CCT Colour Challenge

Hello! It's a colour challenge over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown and our hostess Julie has chosen a combo of green and white (with a nod to St Patrick's Day).

I really enjoyed stamping this misty forest of Christmas trees in Cucumber Crush and Mint Macaron. The tree and moon stamp is from Moon Gazer by Lindsay Mason (for Personal Impressions). Although it is meant to be a moon (complete with a moon-gazing hare!) I think it looks more like a pale winter sun here. I have also added some Glimmer Paper stars and a piece of washi tape as the finishing touches.

Such an intriguing colour combination to work with! I do hope you will join us. April x

A last gasp of an entry for Pixie's Snippets Playground (sorry Di and Parsnip!) The glimmer paper is a snippet. The Cucumber Crush card wasn't exactly a snippet, but it was an unloved piece of cardstock, if you see what I mean. I do like green, but Cucumber Crush is a bit too green sometimes!


  1. Love this April! You sure tamed that Cucumber Crush perfectly - a lovely Christmas card!

  5. Très joli April, quel beau paysage et quelle atmosphère fraîche et vivifiante elle me fait sentir, biz

  6. Such a lovely scene. I agree that the moon stamps works perfectly as a winter sun.
