The colour inspiration was taken directly from page 59 of the current Idea Book and Catalogue - which is absolutely packed with gorgeous samples and inspiration. If you don't already have one, why not order one from me for the special price of £4 including p&p (see right bar for details).
Both cards are a non-standard size as I didn't need an envelope with them. This is a two-step stamping set and in both cases I stamped the line image in Elegant Eggplant and overstamped with Rich Razzleberry and Perfect Plum. Looks like I'm getting into these purple shades!
Here's how to make these cards:
- Cut a piece of Elegant Eggplant card stock 7cm x 21cm, score and fold in half to make a card base.
- Stamp a design on Whisper White card stock cut 6.5cm wide x 10cm high. Sponge lightly around the design with Certainly Celery ink.
- Embellish with Rich Razzleberry 1/4" grosgrain ribbon before attaching to the card front.
- Add a sentiment.

If you live in the UK you may have noticed how dark it's getting. In less than a week it will be November and from there it will be a matter of weeks until Christmas... But don't panic! Join me tomorrow for Three Minute Thursday, when I'll be showing you another of my Christmas cards-in-minutes.
See you then,
