Purple and Silver Ornaments


I love silver and purple together for Christmas.  This card is made with some more Memory Box dies from Joan's Gardens.  Aren't those ornaments beautiful.  Here are the products I used:  Memory Box "Snowflake Ornament" (98231); Memory Box "Crisp Bows" (98197); Memory Box "Frosty Border" (98171); and a Heartfelt Creations background.  The punched border was created with the Martha Stewart "Aspen Snowflake" punches.  

The snowflake border was punched, then a piece of dark purple card stock was cut to fit just inside the  punched border.  The Heartfelt Creations snowflake flourish background was silver embossed on white card stock and attached over the purple cs.  The Memory Box Snowflake Ornaments were die cut using some gorgeous shiny silver card stock that you can now get at Joan's Gardens.  This silver card stock is so perfect for Christmas cards -- bright and shiny.  The Frosty Border was also die cut using this silver card stock and glued to the top of the card.  The ornaments were glued to some purple "velvet" paper that I have had in my stash for a very long time.  I always hated to use this paper but it is beautiful behind these pretty ornaments.   Thin silver cording was attached behind the ornaments so they could hang from the Frosty Border.  I started to add a ribbon to the top of the ornaments and didn't think it was "elegant" enough for these pretty ornaments, so remembered I had the Memory Box "Crisp Bows".  Wow - they were just what I was looking for.  They were also die cut out of the silver card stock.  The ornaments were attached with dimensional dots and a pretty bow was attached at the top of each one.  My corners were a little bare - I had some small silver corner stickers in my stash that I decided to add to the bottom to complete this card. The front was attached to a dark purple card.

All the products in "bold" can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.  Be sure to go over to Joan's Gardens and check out her big "12 Days of Christmas" Sale.

What a beautiful card! I am so jealous... you must have all of the Memory Box dies! I have recently received my first set of dies and love the way they look, but must admit to mixed results with getting them off the die - do you have any hints or tips?

Hugs,
Antonella :-)

P.S. I am following your blog because I love your work!
