Purple and Gold Rich Colours for Christmas

Hello blogland, followers old and new, I love purple and gold for Christmas cards and my DT makes for the Papermill's newsletter this week all use a fabulous 117gm purple cord paper which is on offer at £5.00 for 20 sheets.  You can find it Here in the Special Offers Section of the shop.  

Here are a few of the ways in which I used this beautiful ribbed paper

The first card, made using white linen card, was embossed  with an embossing folder which was free with a magazine.  I cut the bauble from an oblong of white linen card using a Memory Box die, attached some coloured string and a matching ribbon, this was layered onto a piece of the purple ribbed paper and attached to the card.

The second card was made using a card blank which I made from gold mirri card. Using the purple ribbed paper the design was cut using the Silhouette Cameo, folded and attached to the gold card using double sided tape on the fold.

This is a beautiful paper and I didn't want to waste any bits so made a cracker and place setting for the Christmas table.  The cracker was a free download for the Silhouette found using Google.  The cracker was cut out and coloured with distress inks in evergreen bough and  seedless preserves, stamped with Hero Arts flourish stamp and embossed with gold.  The cracker was made up and tied  at each end with gold ribbon, a strip of the purple paper was edged, stamped and embossed in gold and attached to the cracker.  The name tag was printed, coloured with the distress inks and a little of the embossed purple paper added.

This is a fabulous paper, to see more ideas and the DT samples follow the link for the Papermill Newsletter,

These are stunning. I know purple and silver has been popular in the past but purple and gold looks so elegant. The bauble die is gorgeous.

All 3 cards are fantastic, the one you made with the Silhouette is particularly stunning because it is difficult to tell how it was made. It looks like a hot foil, letter-pressed design!
