Tearing Purple Holes for Christmas - DCM

Loved the theme for daring cardmakers this week! The challenge was to use the color purple for a Christmas card. The card also had to have a hole and some paper tearing. Since I like using non-traditional colors for Christmas, I jumped right in.


The stamp images are all by Rubber Soul. The snowman and sentiment were stamped using Imperial purple Versafine ink. The snowflakes were embossed with Winter Wonderland embossing powder, so they have some sparkle to them. I used a scalloped Marvy mega punch to make my window, and I hand tore the bottom edges of my top two layers. It was a simple design, but fun to work with.

  9. That snowman is just fab!

    I think simple designs are exactly right for Christmas, when you need to make a lot - this looks the sort of design you can make little variations with too, so that you don't end up brain-dead-bored while making them
