Joyful in non Traditional Christmas Colours

Color Hues #26-Purple and Pink

With purple being one of my favorite colours you would think doing a card would be easy, but it wasn’t. And try as I might I could not get a nice photo of this card either. I think that there is so much going on in the house all the time that I am not truly settled into creativity, but I’m getting there slowly.

I had the dry embossed piece on my desk and decided on a small slimline for it. I cut the pink CS and added the panel. Using a stencil I added the hearts down the side along with the small gems. Now what? Originally I thought of die cutting several hearts in different shades of the purple and pink and adding those, but I couldn’t find the dies. While looking for them I found the poinsettia Editions by Creative Expressions and thought okay, a Christmas card it will be. Took forever to get a good die cut of the top section of the flower and I had to try 3 times before it cut and came out of the die intact. I used a paper pad called floral fantasy for this and a scrap piece of the pinky purple solid die cut underneath. The PP had a silver stripe in it which I thought added interest. As I also have a stamp and die set on my desk by Lawn Fawn I used the sentiment from this set. I heat embossed in black then used the matching die to cut it out. I do like the font of this word.

  2. That gorgeous layered poinsettia looks wonderful in purple for your pink/purple challenge. It’s such a nice combination of valentine’s day and Christmas that to me would work for either holiday.
