In Lavender

Hello everyone,

Today's post is the last Christmas card of the extended 'Christmas In July' series.

The printed paper is of unknown origin.  The background text panel is a stamp of unknown origin stamped in an ink of unknown origin on a white of unknown origin and layered on Close To My Heart Gypsy.  The image is Rubber Stampede Santa Collage stamped in Altenew Deep Iris on a Bazzill white and layered on more Gypsy.  The image is highlighted with Lavender Stickles.

I know Santa should not be purple but this snowflake paper just cried out for purple!  All the elements in this card stem from the donated printed paper which I thought worked particularly well with the donated light blue card base.  Given the busy background paper, the busy text panel and the very detailed image, I chose to layer with a solid paper to break up all the patterns.  I don't think these three patterns would work so well together if  they weren't separated by the Gypsy.

I have really enjoyed crafting all of the cards in this year's Christmas In July series.  There will be more Christmas cards to come as I've a few holiday orders and a swap still to craft.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
