Christmas Remix: Winter Flora



We’ve got a such a stunner to show you today it’s called Winter Flora and wowee!  It’s a colourists dream!

Whimsical, wildly wonderful, and a total wow — Winter Flora is a botanical set that goes beyond. You'll love tackling this tangle of Poinsettia, Sweet Bay Magnolia, and Hellebores plus verdant bits of Holly, Pine, and Spruce, punctuated by berries and glass ornaments! There are so many ways you can take this. You can go classic red, white, and green. Think pink with various shades of pastel prettiness. Infuse warm glimmers of yellow, bronze, and gold. You get multiple versions of this bodacious border — with and without sentiments. 


I decided to go with one of my favourite Christmas combinations turquoise, red and white, with a bit of festive green thrown in!  Isn’t the collection of flowers, ornaments and sentiment stunning?  I love the freshness to this colour palette as well.  It really makes things pop, while staying true to the colours of the flowers.  


For texture, I placed the design on an embossed pine layer of white, it adds something, while not being distracting.  


Otherwise it’s a very clean card, I didn’t even add any embellishments.  An image like this can just speak for itself!  

Here are the Copics I used today:
