What do you think of the purple and gold colors? I never really think of purple as a color for the holidays, but our theme was Winter Wonderland for the SCS Creative Crew this month. We were given 4 pictures to get inspiration from and one of them had a purplish tint to it. It caught my eye right away. See it below
Isn't this picture so peaceful, bright, calming and elegant all at the same time. I could picture myself sitting on a bench sipping coffee or hot chocolate and letting the worries of the day fall away. This picture got me thinking about how could I make a card, that was a creative fold and with a winter wonderland theme.
The first thing I did was go to my designer series paper and see if anything jumped out at me. It didn't take me long to find the Year of Cheer DSP with the snowflakes in gold and silver all over it. I knew then I could really put any color with the paper, but I wanted to tie in the color from the picture. I found the Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant to be a perfect combination.
I then remembered I had made a double front fold card before and loved it. If you missed it, click HERE to see it.
To make this card you will need the following products:
Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper #144640
- cut at 5 1/2" x 6 1/4 score at 2"
Elegant Eggplant Cardstock #105126
- cut 2 at 2 3/4" x 3 3/4"
Whisper White Cardstock #100730
- cut at 4 3/4" x 7 1/2" score at 3 3/4"
- cut 2 at 2 1/2" x 3 1/2"
I stamped a sentiment from the Colorful Seasons stamp set on the smallest piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Wisteria Wonder ink. Then I stamped a snowflake from the Snowflake Sentiments for the inside of the card and my envelope with Elegant Eggplant ink.
I attached the Wisteria Wonder cardstock to the Year of Cheer DSP , making sure I was close to the fold line, but not too close. If you put the Wisteria Wonder paper right on the line, the flap of them DSP will not lay nice. I would try it first before you put your adhesive on it so you know exactly where you want to put it.
You will then attach one of the Elegant Eggplant pieces on top of the large Wisteria Wonder piece of paper, making sure it is centered. Attach the white piece of paper with the sentiment on it to this piece. See the pictures below for a visual of what I am talking about.
You will then put the other piece of Elegant Eggplant paper on the top attaching it to the DSP paper. REMINDER, only put adhesive on the left hand side of this paper. Line up your two pieces and then press down. You want to make sure they are even, they are suppose to look like they are connected.
I embellished the front with the Foil Snowflake and a snowflake cut from the Trim Your Stocking thinlits using the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.
I hope everyone had a great weekend. Thank you for stopping by today.
