Purple and Silver Christmas Card

Here is the second card I made for the design team call at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. Their challenge was a color challenge: purple, silver, and white. I used the sketch from RetroSketches, rotated.

I used the Artiste Cricut cartridge for the fancy square in the middle. This is the first time I used the glitter paper from the Whooo's your Valentine kit. It's so cool! The ornament was sponged with petal ink, the top embossed with silver embossing powder, and then overlayed with a second layer that I dotted with silver Glitz.
Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy, Petal, Silver Glitter paper
Stamps: Holiday Magic
Ink: Versa Mark, Petal
Other: Silver Embossing Powder, Silver Glitz Glitter Gel, Dimensional Elements Ornaments, Artiste Cricut cartridge, lace (not CTMH)


  1. Beautiful card. That is a very interesting fancy square and the gorgeous bauble.
