Handmade Purple Christmas Card with Snowflakes and Plaid

If you're anything like me, your Christmas card crafting is in full swing!  Autumn with you today to share this atypical colored Christmas card featuring our lovely Snowflake Corner die.

I was so pleased to find out that the Mulberry Mist glittery embossing powder I had won a couple of years back coordinated perfectly with Milled Lavender Distress Ink!  I was inspired to create a pale purple Christmas card after seeing the latest Authentique and Kaisercraft paper releases.  Sadly, my floor may fall in if I buy much more paper, so I opted to make my own patterns with my stamps and an embossing folder. :)

I cut my Snowflake Corner from white watercolor paper then rubbed with my Versamark pad and embossed.  Next, I stamped this beautiful plaid stamp by Wendy Vecchi and embossed again for my back layer.

I ran the Tiny Dots EF by Tim Holtz through my machine and met up the end to do a second run.  I used my seam binding to conceal the break in the design.  The edges of both panels are lightly tinted with Milled Lavender.  I finished it off with a loopy bow and a sentiment stamped in grey and cut into a banner.  I hope you are inspired to make your own coordinating collections with your inks and die cuts today!
