House of Cards November Challenge

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the House of Cards November Challenge! We have a winter holiday inspiration for you this month that you are going to love!  Create a card inspired by the Holiday photo, use the color palette, or combine the two for your own gorgeous winter creation! You can get all the details, link up your creation, and see more great inspiration and ideas over at the House of Cards Blog right here:

Holiday and/or Colors

To be honest, I really had a hard time with this month’s challenge! My first attempt was much to literal of an interpretation – -I had coffee mugs and pine needles, and it just looked way too dark and clunky. But then I tried something completely different, creating a wreath of beautiful stitched leaves in shades of green, gray, and purplish red, a bit of a variation of the color palette. I finally achieved what I wanted originally, lots of texture and a feeling of the wintry outdoors!

Take a look at how our design team felt inspired too!

    This is just gorgeous and I love how you described the process of designing it. I tend to think that I need to do a literal interpretation of a challenge and often get stuck when I don’t “feel” it. This is a reminder that an inspiration photo is just that…a starting point. Love the gray wood grained background with those bright cheery leaves!
