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!!!
