Peace in Purple



My sweet friend Alice sent me some of these beautiful delicate white die-cuts that are probably flowers, but I saw them as snowflakes, so I used one on a Christmas card here. The royal purple mirror card was embossed with a SU! Winter Wonder ef and cut to fit the white card base. I adhered the white die cut over the top and added some sparkly clear Nuvo drops all over. The Peace sentiment is a MB die cut that was cut from the same purple mirror cardstock and I called this one done.


Here's another one made with gold mirror card and a Die-Versions matching die-cut sentiment. Thanks for sharing these beautiful diecuts with me Alice :)

I'm entering the first card into the May Rudolph challenge to make a Christmas card.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day everyone!

I'm very glad you used these diecuts for your wonderful cards, Carol!! Such a fabulous result with the embossed mirri cardstock, really they pop so well and matches perfectly the emboss!! Wow!! I have never though this, thanks for the inspiration!!:D The purple one is my favourite, it looks just stunning and the gold is very elegant! And I'm sure that they are much more amazing IRL!! :D
P.S. Yes, you are in right, they would be flowers: they are part of the Heartfelt Creations Arianna Lace set ;)

This die qualifies for both a flower and a snowflake. I love the way you used it too. Very elegant looking.

These cards are so very elegant with just the right amount of sparkle. That mirri card looks wonderful embossed.

Beautiful cards - I love the combination of stamping and embossing you've used, it looks really luxurious.

Lucky you to get some of Alice's stash. I enjoyed how she's organizing it so that she can find things! I see this as a snowflake too (well, after seeing yours, of course I did!). The purple background makes the white show so well, and the embossing behind the snowflake shows well too. While I think both of these are just gorgeous, I think I might lend towards the purple being my fav! It could be that the background contrasts so well, and makes it show better (but I don't know!!!) TFS & Happy Memorial day
