As summer begins to unwind and the days are shortening, as a card maker the thoughts have already turned towards Christmas. Of course traditionally red and green predominate the market. However several years ago I began to depart from that and began to bring in plums and teals, then my source for the plum cardstock I had been using dried up. Recently, I found it back in stock, so I was back in business! Today I'm showing off a simple card using plum and shades of green.

 The bottom forest green and top spring green layer (Hollos) have been embossed with the same Sizzix Sugar embossing folder (from the Sugar and Starry Night set #657066). A middle layer of Leapfrog (Bazzil Basics) a lighter green, has not been embossed. The top plum layer (Hollos) is cut and embossed with Spellbinders Labels Eighteen and the sentiment "Rejoice" (Rubber Cottage) is embossed with Stampendous Sterling Silver embossing powders.

Get creative and plan now to do your own Christmas cards...the sky is the limit! Have fun...and thanks for stopping by...



  1. Beautiful design! I love love love the embossing and the sentiment is so pretty.

  2. This Christmas card is just beautiful! I love the idea of plum and teal for Christmas--so perfect. And you've layered so many lovely textures here.
