Thinking of You at Christmas …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I would like to share a card that I had designed for our Holiday Stampin’ Retreat. I love making cards for this special event, we have so much fun and we get to know each other so much better.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I like to have a few non-traditional colored Christmas cards, however I believe that the Elegant Eggplant is the perfect Christmas color. It’s a rich, warm color that makes me think of a color that one of the three Wise men would have worn.


I chose the Delicate Ornaments bundle for my card … I wanted to highlight both the beautiful stamp set and the intricate ornaments. My stamped image was inked in Perfect Plum and then I used the sponge daubers to add a touch of the Elegant Eggplant through the center of the ornament.

I cut out the small round ornament from the Elegant Eggplant using the thinlits from the bundle, and then placed it over the silver glimmer paper that I had punched out of the center of the paper I used as my mat. (I don’t like to waste paper)


The ornament tops are also from the thinlit bundle and cut from the Silver Foil paper found in the main Stampin’ Up! catalog. After stamping the greeting onto the card, I assembled the card, popping up the small round ornament and adding a touch of bling with the rhinestones.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card share. Please let me know if you have any questions about the card or placing an order for supplies.  The list of ingredients is below.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to visit my blog.

Have an awesome Friday!!
