Purple Christmas

Over at Passion for Promarkers and also at Sarah Hurley, they are looking for Christmas cards this week - the former purple/pink and the latter no red/green.  Easy for me as I do love Christmas cards that are modern yet still traditional therefore this is what I have made this year for my daughter's general Christmas cards.

Using the fabulous freebie stamp from Craft Stamper magazine I stamped onto Rymans smooth card then coloured with Promarkers. I then added mirri board and no sentiment as there is an insert and she wanted them very simple.  Think I have achieved this here.  I also made some in pink and also blue so she has an assortment to choose from.
The close up below shows how I shaded the image with 3 different colours of PMs ~ Maroon, Lilac & Lavender, and the texture on the backing paper which is from The Papermill Shop.

I hope you all have a fab weekend whatever you are doing ~ Graham is treating me to a day in London tomorrow and then we are going to the theatre in the evening - dunno what to see as it is a birthday surprise for me!! Will let you know on Sun/Mon. X

  2. Have a fantastic day in London Sheila, Happy Birthday.
    Your Christmas card might be simple, but I always find them the most suitable, like my last all white Father Christmas, very simple but nice clean lines.
    I like the textured purple cardstock and the freebie stamp is great. Enjoy your time away. Hugs Debbiexx
