This month I decided to get creative with a color combo from the color coach. Check out my Coral Merriest Christmas Card made with Calypso Coral, Sweet Sorbet and Mossy Meadow.

Coral Merriest Trees Christmas Card


The colour coach is a tool provided by Stampin’ Up! ® that makes colour-matching a breeze.

Download your free copy of the Colour Coach. You can print it out onto white card, cut it up and add a ring so you can flip through the pages. Or I keep mine open on my computer.

Coral Christmas Colour Coach

Above is the page I used for my inspiration.

The basic idea is to follow a line, of which there are 3 per card. However, I jumped around and used Calypso Coral, Sweet Sorbet and Mossy Meadow. As they were all matched with Calypso Coral I felt okay about swapping the green.

This is the Calypso Coral card but Calypso Coral appears 8 more times on other cards within the coach, a total of 11 combinations. So on the computer I can search for the name of a colour and then arrow through all of the combinations.

However, there are other combinations that also work, like I demonstrated by switching the green.

Check out the main feature – the Calypso Coral striped designer series paper from the Les Shoppes pack.

To anchor the tree, I used a layer of Vellum cut with the Deckled Rectangle dies.

A good tip for the gold tinsel and ornaments is to add adhesive sheets to the back of the paper/foil before die cutting. Then you can simply peal the backing away and stick them onto the tree.
