Purple and Silver

I've really fallen down on my ambition of mastering one layer cards this year.  I've also slacked on the Christmas cards until quite recently.  So no prizes for guessing what's coming up!

Yep, a one layer Christmas card.  Masked, embossed, inked, splashed and stamped.  I wonder if I should have done my sentiment in silver too?


I love it.  Although my TH inks did not love that card.  That card did not do blending.  But I still love it.

I created this with the following challenges in mind:

Crafty Catz entry #3 - Anything Goes
One-Layer Christmas 20 - Anything Goes with twist of Stocking (I actually made this with the previous challenge in mind but clearly was a bit behind.  So I'm not using the twist this time)



One-Layer Simplicity - Weather
Sparkle n Sprinkle - Loose glitter/Embossing or Flocking.  I have embossed my snowflakes.

Thank you for dropping by and leaving lovely comments.

I love this. How clever - looks more than just CAS! Love that you used the black for the sentiment - it would have been lost in silver, I think. Thanks for joining us at the Creative Challenge for Sparkle N Sprinkle.

OMG, I missed this one! Stunning Abi. I LOVE it!! The silver and purple are gorgeous and your inky background is perfect. I like the black sentiment it really pops against the ink and silver. Gorgeous hun. Hugs, Wends x

This is very pretty and I like the sentiment dark like it is. I think it would have 'gotten lost' if you'd done it silver and this way it stands out so much. Love the embossed snowflakes with the purple... in my world, you can never go wrong with purple!

Lovely card. Love the purple background with the water splatters. The silver snowflakes look great against it. Thanks for joining us over at OLCCC! :-)
