Day 18 - Softly, Softly

Christmas is usually associated with bold, rich colours - deep reds, bold greens and bright golden highlights - but sometimes it's nice to see softer colours on holiday projects.

Just lovely! Great papers (I love plaids). I really like how you did the sentiment, too.

love the soft colours of this and the use of non Christmas paper. Just shows you don't have to use Christmas paper for a Christmas card.

So soft and pretty, Beccy. I don't use a lot of PPs these days, but I love how you've used them while still achieving a clean look. Also love how you did the sentiment.

Your card is so pretty, Beccy! I really like how you trimmed the sentiment banners - very eye-catching! As for soft colours, I'm afraid I don't use them very often. I tend to reach for the bright, bold colours, so maybe I need to tone it down a bit! Hmmmm, I will be thinking of soft colours for my next card! Yes, I already have something soft in mind! Stay tuned!

Can't get much prettier and softer than this for Christmas.....I agree with bright and bold and then a splash of softness makes that card stand out.

Really pretty card and I especially like the idea of slant-cutting the banners. It just draws the eye around the "triangle" of the card. I like using the soft colors as well!

You are so right. Just like my black card where the colors pop I do go for bold colors at Christmas time. But this soft colored card brings peace and quiet into the life and I felt that sense of peace as soon as I saw your card. Intriguing idea. I'm going to have to try this. Maybe it will bring some calm into my somewhat hectic life right now. The other thing I thought of was that blue would probably be my go to color but I love the soft green. Very pretty!
