I love creating Christmas cards and I love to create them using Non-traditional colors. Not sure if you can tell but the dark color on this card is actually a textured eggplant which is why I tied in the perfectly plum polka dot ribbon (PTI) I stamped Santa in a craft white ink and then added a super fine white glitter while it was still wet. Rather than white it is a light lavender!!!!! That was pleasantly unexpected. The snowflakes are stamped with aqua mist then heat embossed with rainbow sparkle embossing powder.....
If you have not already discovered PaperCraft Planet, I would like to cordially invite you to check it out. Between that website and other blogs, I think I may actually be spending more time cruising the internet vs. making my cards ;o( Are you guys aware of just how many challenges and blog candies there are out there? Would love to know how everyone else manages their creative time or am I the only blog stalker??? I will be back tomorrow, thanks for taking the time to check out my blog..
