Ask and you shall recieve....

After yesterday's post on my purple card making frenzy, my lovely PSF June asked if I would make a purple Christmas card, as she likes Christmas cards in non-traditional colours. Well June, here it is. I have to admit though that I didn't just whip it up on demand, it was one that I made when testing out ideas for my Secret Santa swap back in July and I'd completely forgotten that I had it there until she mentioned it :) So here's a purple Christmas card just for June...I made this one with the retired Holiday Spirit Set, Perfect Plum, Pale Plum and some Elegant Eggplant ribbon. The baubles are embossed in gold and bits of them coloured with the Eggplant marker. I actually really liked how it turned out, I just decided on pink and silver rather than the purple and gold :)

This next one is a little bit more traditional, made with Artichoke, Purely Pomegranate and River Rock CS and the Holiday Harmony DSP from the Spring Mini...
I also used the Happy Everything set for the sentiment and the large and small star punches. There's a large green rhinestone brad in there as well for a bit of bling. I can't believe I didn't use any ribbon though!!! I did think about it but wasn't happy with any of the places to put it. The layout is based on Beate's WSC #58, but just in a normal A5 card instead of a square (for easy mailing). I went a bit crazy swiping the CS with the ink pad....it's probably a bit much but I'll just send it to someone I don't like so much....JOKING!!!

Tonight I'll be working on making some cards for Cammie's MASSIVE blog candy giveaway...whoever wins that one will be one happy stamper I'm telling you. If you haven't seen it you should get on over there asap and check it out. I am full of admiration for what she is doing to raise both money and awareness for Alzheimer’s reseach....so what are you waiting for, go check it out, make a card and enter the comp...you just might be the lucky winner :) {though I am not so secretly hoping it will be ME!}.

Have a great day,
Kristie

These are gorgeous Kristie! I love the non-traditional colors for Christmas cards! Last year I made one that was pixie pink and tempting turqoise! LOL It was "LOUD" {SMILEs}

A cyber card just for me :) You are a wonderful friend, Miss Kristie! I think both of these cards are beautiful. Thank you for posting a purple Christmas card and a purely pomegranate (I love that color!)
