Easy Ombre Holiday Card


Surprise! It’s Alma here with ANOTHER card for you for our “Anything Goes Challenge.” Today, I’m doing another rendition of the ombre effect using the same colors that I did in my previous cards, Tim Holtz’s Distressed Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, and Stormy Sky. I don’t know what it is about this color combo, but when I first used it in one of our latest Color Challenges, I fell in love. And once I find something I love, I use it and use it. So be forewarned.


This time I wanted it to look like the sun was just rising behind the farm scene from our Holiday Toppers Die set. And, for a little interest, I added drops of water to the ombre so it looked like stars or snow.

Lastly, I stamped and embossed with Clear Detail Embossing Powder one of the sentiments from our Home for all Seasons stamp set.


This card was fast and easy to do with minimal layers. I can easily see doing a lot of these sitting in front of the TV. And, I don’t know about you, but that’s the kind of card that I love.
