Traditional Colors ~ Color Dare #423

It's that time of year! If you're still making your Christmas cards or just crafting you'll find some great ideas on this challenge. This challenge is to use traditional colors of the holidays...meaning read and greens. 

You don't have to make a Christmas card....make any paper craft you like! Just make sure to stick with Reds and Greens! We also give you some FREE colors like Black, White, all Neutrals plus Gold and Silver. 

When you're ready use the link in our post at Color My Heart Color Dare to join the challenge.

I made this waterfall card and love how it turned out! As you pull the tab on the right the layers slowly unfold showing you what's on the the squares. I opted to spell NOEL but you can put anything you like on each square.  Using our Waterfall Die Cut makes this card easy to create. Back when I started almost 25 years ago we made waterfall cards but had to do all the engineering that goes into the motion part. With the dies it's SO much easier as that is all done for you! This die is great for any time of year! It would even be a great gift or gift idea!

  1. Very clever card! Even with the die I’m sure you had your work cut out fixing it all together. X

  2. Great idea with the word for a waterfall! I really like the patterned paper used for the letters.

  3. Beautiful card! Great use of the waterfall technique!

  4. Love that you made a waterfall Christmas card! So cool!

  5. Looks good! I like the black and how the letters are situated.

  6. Excellent way of using the waterfall card... love the flow of the sentiment. Creative.

  7. Great waterfall card, Michelle! I have never made one but perhaps I need to give it a try. I am sure having the die is a bonus. Using black really made the card pop.
