Here is my last Advent calendar, with a Religious christmas theme. I used a white background in order to enhance the beautiful paper from Kaisercraft and I put gold ink on the borders to give a vintage look.
Paper and die-cuts : Kaisercraft ("Holy Night")
Paper clip : Pink Paislee
This theme was vague enough to allow partners to create whatever they wanted :
"Are you on the vacation of a lifetime? … having tea with the Queen …lead singer in a touring band … next Mozart … a baby elephant at play… a majestic mountain … a deep sea creature…a superhero…a master of quotes… your choice !"
I had several ideas... To make a choice, I asked my partner what was her favourite colour. It was "green"... Well, that was another big challenge for me because green, like purple, is not an accent colour I use. However, I had just received the fantastic Cedar Lane range from Pink Paislee. So, I took a green carstock for the background, selected the green tones from the Cedar Lane range and made my choice about the story :
"I am a writer traveling through Fall dreams".
Yes, I know, it is a bit weird (Gaiman's Sandman's influence, I suppose). Anyway, here is the result :
