Ah...July...such a gorgeous time of year: the sun is shining, flowers blooming, kids playing, mowers mowing and crafters making Christmas cards. :)
Many blog sites are keeping us crafters in check and ensuring that we get a head start on our Christmas cards. JustRite is one of those blogs and their challenge this time is Non-traditional Christmas colors. I decided to make a card using white, purple (dusty concord) and kraft. Purple is a color hardly used in any of my projects so this was an enjoyable change.
The card front used "Merry and Bright" from JustRite's Christmas Inner Thoughts and the poinsettias (Hey! I spelled that correctly without autocorrect!) are from JustRite's Festive Poinsettia. I filled in the open areas of the poinsettias with my dusty concord Distress Marker. Bling berries were applied.
The card base was made using Spellbinders Grand Decorative Labels One and also Scalloped Labels One. I applied dusty concord along all of the edges and a wee bit of walnut stain, too. Glitter mist was also sprayed on the card front.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all are having a fantastic week.
