For the SU aficionados, I'd say something with Wild Wasabi!

I thought that I was the only one planning my Christmas cards already! I will be using Baroque Motifs with purely pomergranate and wild wasabi. I will also be embossing my sentiment in gold. I just bought the gold embossing powder today on a therapy shopping trip alone at AC Moore. I am having a workshop in early September where I will be getting two packages of each color cardstock. I can't wait to start!

Purely Pom and Wild Wasabi sound pretty! I'm all for unconventional colors this year so I'm not really sure what mine will be!

I'm using colors inspired by ribbon I found after Christmas last year - a chartreuse with a raspberry-ish stitch running down the middle. The card will be in the raspberry color with a chartreuse scalloped oval,image stamped on vanilla layer & a variety of fun DP strip behind this. Haven't decided if the DP will be Cbug embossed or not. It just grabed me & hasn't let go!

I'm doing a bunch in different shades of blues so I can include my cuttlebug snowflake folder!

Last year I went with leftover wedding cardstock, perfect and pale plum. See HERE for the picture. I'm still deciding this year, but I am pretty sure I will be doing something more traditional this year and going with the basic red and green. I'm leaning toward something like THIS or THIS.

I haven't really thought about it, but I really do love the Purely Pomegranate. I may go with blue this year though.

I usually use red. One year I used Navy and Burgandy, but I always go back to red.

I haven't decided for sure- but I'm looking at the 'Blizzard' paper in the Holiday mini and thinking that might be an interesting theme colour set. I do want to do quite a bit of snowflake stuff.
I don't do a tremendous amount of cards and things.

Oh, you all sound so organised and disciplined with colour schemes and I wish I could be the same * sigh *

No doubt my cards will be red, green, pink, blue, lilac - as they are every year - a jumbled mix, no cohesion! Not all those colours on the one card though LOL!

I still have quite a bit of Doodlebug DP from last year so definitely red and green cards. And there will be lots of blue cards 'cos I love snowflakes and snowmen.

So Alex, what will you be using?

I'm thinking I may use Sage Shadow with copper this year. I have a pretty snowfake punch that made up some great tags last year. I always try to do something a little bit different than the traditional red and green. I also love Always Artichoke and Burgundy for holiday cards.........so dressy. Whatever I make, I will try to keep it as FLAT as possible to avoid paying additional postage.

I'm digging a mint green with dark red color combo lately. But we'll see if that will last until I get going on my cards

Im making several different cards, one will have a mellow moss and crisp cranberry, that's the only one I know for sure!

I am waiting to get the holiday mini before I make my order and lock in my Christmas cards.
