A Purple Christmas

Who says a Christmas card has to be traditional Christmas colors??  I love those rare Christmas cards that you see that aren't the reds, greens, golds, etc.  Don't get me wrong I love those cards too, but I especially love the unexpected color used on a Christmas card. Which is probably why I love this card so much.  Who uses purple for Christmas?  I DO!!!  This stocking is a punch, so cute!  I love this little stocking.  I used the embossing folder frames and sponged around the edges to highlight the embossed areas.  I embossed the bottom half of the white cardstock with the stripes embossing folder.  I saw a card similar to this on Stampin' Connection (a demonstrator only resource full of samples and ideas).  I didn't mark it and can't find it now, but that's where my inspiration came from.
The stocking is punched in Wisteria Wonder with some Elegant Eggplant highlights.  I added some shimmer on the stocking with our new silver shimmer sheets.  SO COOL!!  The stocking punch and silver paper will be in the new Holiday Mini Catalog September 1.  I also sponged the stocking in Wisteria Wonder for a little depth.  I used the bakers twine to add a little hook on the top corner.  Finish it with my favorite ribbon and it's done!!  I love it!  Simple, cute, and easy!!!   
Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!!
