Yellow for Christmas

The August challenge from Christmas Cards All Year Round is to use yellow.  I'm entering this card:

I sponged with various dark yellows and yellow-browns to get the background. I stamped the trees in green. The snow is done with chunky white Frantage embossing enamel that I sprinkled over the card and heated from the underside.

Thanks for stopping by.  I'll be back tomorrow with some of the cards I did for SCS Dare to Get Dirty challenges.

Stamps - Tim Holtz trees, Impression Obsession sentiment
Ink - Memento Northern Pine, various Distress inks
Paper - white and mixed media cs
Size - A2
Accessories - Frantage chunky white embossing enamel, Memory Box Christmas star die, fun foam


  1. really pretty, love the yellow and brown blended background and also love the trees :)

  2. Beautiful card Susan. I don't think I've ever seen a yellow Christmas card ... this looks FANTASTIC. Especially love the finishing touch with the chunky frantage. xx

  3. Your beautiful snowy background just Glows, Susan. I love your stamped trees, vertical sentiment and gold stars too. TFS my friend. Hugs

  4. Love the glow of the background and the pretty snowstorm, Susan!

  5. Such a different idea to use the yellow for a Christmas card and it looks amazing. Contemporary and gorgeous x

  6. beautiful distressed background, I just love the warm colour in the wintry scene. As always the chunky frantage looks awesome
