Holiday Color Combos Galore

Hello all! Thanks so much for joining me over the weekend for Paper Crafts Magazine's blog hop to celebrate the release of Holiday Cards & More, Vol. 5. The big winner has been announced today over at Paper Crafts Connection, so click over to see if you are the lucky duck that won a whole lot of holiday product:)
I just loved reading all of your responses to my question about what holiday colors you would be using this year... it was impressive to hear that so many people have already started their holiday cards... or that you already knew what color scheme you would be using. 

The top color combo mentioned is the traditional favorite of red & green... many of you expanded it to add kraft, cream or white, while others loved it with a metallic like silver or gold. I guess for most there is nothing that better than those nostalgic colors. I love them... they remind me of my grandma's house all decked out during the holidays with those big old fashioned red & green colored bulbs... I love those kind of memories:)

The second most popular combo seemed to be a variation of blue combined with white, silver and/or gold. And don't forget about kraft... that is defiantly gong to be very popular this year (which makes me happy because it is one of my favorite crafting products). It seems that many of you are pairing it with some of your favorite colors and putting a holiday spin on it... so fun!

Other cool trends included pink with variations of green ranging from lime to olive. And one that I particularly like is red, blue & white (or a variation of each) with kraft or another neutral like cream.
Other fun ideas that were shared include:
Aqua, Red & White or Kraft
Navy, Red or Green with Silver, Cream or Kraft
Burgundy, Cream & Dark Green
Light or icy Greens, Blues, Purples & Pinks
Pink, Aqua & Lime
Pink with various colors of Blue

Now on to the winner from all comments left here... Congratulations to Jaclyn Miller who said:
You mean I have to choose just one color combo? Oh man, well it depends on what stamps I use, but I tend to be traditional with deep greens and reds for most cards and blues for snowy items.
