purple_ornamentsThis card is super easy to make, and it is a very pretty non-traditional color combination. I enjoy making cards in color combinations that you don't think of as Christmas colors. Also, I have a few friends that absolutely love the color purple, so I designed this card with them in mind. Sorry about the quality of the photo – I'll have to experiment some more with my settings the next time I'm grabbing some pics.

The ornaments were made using a coordinating stamp set and Framelit dies that were featured in the 2012 Holiday catalog. They aren't listed in any catalog, but they are still available. A number of holiday sets from last year are on a "carry-over" list, and still available for purchase. Use this link to see all of the items on the holiday carry-over list.

I used the following materials to make this card:

  • Stamps: Sweet Essentials, Ornament Keepsakes
  • Cardstock: Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White
  • Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant
  • Accessories: Holiday Ornaments Framelits, Tasteful Trim die, Basic Rhinestones, Sweater Weather DSP, Silver cord (retired), Stampin' Dimensionals
