When I first saw the SUO challenge to create something using your favorite holiday colors, I thought I knew what those were. When I looked back over the projects I have been working on this year, I was shocked to find out that my favorite holiday colors appear to be the absence of color. My favorite holiday colors happen to be those "colors" you are allowed to add to any color challenge. I have decided I love working with black and white and metallics, My favorite metal at this point is silver.
I am working on gift packaging right now and wanted to try my hand at creating a custom gift box for this challenge. I created the bottom of the box in Basic Black cardstock and the top with the Merry Music DSP. I do have to admit it took me a couple of tries since my measurements for the top of the box were a bit off the first time, but that's OK, it just means I ended up with TWO gorgeous boxes using the Merry Music Specialty DSP.
Make sure you head over to SUO Challenges to check out the inspiration from the design team as well as the other creative entries. Check out everyone's favorite holiday colors.
Here some photo proof that I tend to be using a lot of black and white and metallics with just a pop of color.
