Welcome to week 27 of our 2021-22 Colour Creations blog hop! Tonight we are showcasing Merry Merlot, a rich deep red wine colour that rather surprisingly sits within the neutrals family.

I love pairing Blushing Bride with Merry Merlot – for this card I’ve added in Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green for foliage and Basic Black and Basic White for contrast.

Merry Merlot colour combination


Recognise this Merry Merlot tartan plaid DSP? It’s actually the black and white check pattern from the Party Pattern DSP pack that I have customised to match the colour combination on my card.

I used my Stampin’ Write markers and ruler to add thin vertical lines of Merry Merlot and thick horizontal lines of Blushing Bride. This is such a quick and easy way to make your own DSP.

The flowers and leaves are die cut using the Christmas cheers dies and the poinsettia dies, with Petal Pink Elegant Faceted Gems adding some sparkle to the centre of the flowers.

The Blushing Bride checked DSP is from the Subtles assortment, die cut with the layering circle dies, and the “Happy Christmas” sentiment is from the Words of Cheer stamp set.

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Kate Morgan – I can’t wait to see what Kate has made this week!
