Some Christmas Cards using the Faux Patina Technique

Hi Everyone,

Here are a couple of cards I've made recently with the Faux Patina Technique.  A couple of different colour combos again, plus a different embossing folder - Lacy Brocade from the Holiday Mini.  The Greetings are also from the Holiday Mini.

The base of this card is Elegant Eggplant and the colours used on the background are Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Rose Red and Elegant Eggplant.

On this card I've used Cardstock of Sahara Sand and Raspberry Ripple with the background  coloured with Crumb Cake, Lucky Limeade, Summer Starfruit and Rich Razzleberry.   The greeting is stamped with Raspberry Ripple to match the card mat.

Thanks for looking.  Please feel free to leave me a comment when  you stop by.  I love to know who's visited me. 


  1. These are lovely Carolyn. Love the colours :)

  2. I love this technique Carolyn and you have used it beautifully! l especially love the richness of the Eggplant colour combo.

    1. Thanks Nikki, I have a class coming up with this technique so I've made quite a few different samples

  3. This shows the Lacey Brocade EF really well. They look so beautiful. I like the "Please leave a comment" too. Vx

  4. Great work. Love the look of this. Might have to add this to my wish/want/need list too! Thanks for sharing.

  5. Hi Carolyn, I had a bad night's sleep and woke at 2.35am. No not the end of the story - the first thing that popped into my head was "Carolyn's raspberry ripple faux patina card". No, I didn't get up to make it but struggled to get back to sleep for the next couple of hours. So, as I sit here with my eyeballs hanging on to their sockets, I ask for your permission to CASE it as my Vintage theme card for a swap group that I participate in. xEv
