DCC Challenge - Use Non-traditional Holiday Colors

It’s another Designer’s Choice Challenge at The House that Stamps Built, Repeat Impression’s blog. It’s my turn and I chose to challenge myself, my team mates and you to make a holiday card using non-traditional colors. I am a green and red Christmas gal, but sometimes we need to step outside our comfort zone and try something different. So pull out your non-traditional colors, make a card and you can enter it for a chance to win some awesome Repeat Impressions rubber! Please visit the blog for all the details and to see the other Rock Star's cards for this DCC challenge. 

For my card I used the lovely Winter’s Eve stamp by Repeat Impressions that I stamped in purple as my focal point. I cut it out leaving a white border, layered on purple and raised with mounting tape above a background of white embossed snowflakes. More layering of purple and a perfect sentiment from Repeat Impressions complete the card.

I am entering this card in the challenge at Hooked on Craft for no reds or greens in our holiday card.

Stamping smiles, Karen
