Christmas card in purple and gold …

Hello and welcome to my blog. For this week’s colour challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown we are asking you to use blue or purple with any metallic of your choice …


My card design started with a piece of wide ribbon I found in my ribbon scrap box. It was the deepest, darkest and richest of purples and I loved it. 


Such a deep, lush colour looked lovely next to gold, so I added a sprinkle of Stampin’ Up gold sequins in a random pattern. I literally sprinkled them onto the card around the sentiment and wherever they fell, I adhered them! (There may have been a few too many, but if you can’t have a bit of bling of Christmas, when can you have?!)


I stamped the sentiment in Stampin’ Up elegant eggplant classic ink onto whisper white cardstock, then mounted onto brushed gold cardstock.  

I hope you like my card for this week. The Design Team has created lots of lovely cards to inspire you, so do pop over to 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge blog to take a look.

I love receiving your messages, so if you have any questions, or you just want to say hi, do please leave me a comment.
