Christmas Card Time~!! (with Webster's Pages)

**For my November giveaway, please go HERE**

Ah, we've reached the halfway point in the week now~ always such a relief! Although I must say these days have just been flying by~!! Many of you have your eyes set on Christmas and have been busy shopping I'm sure...me? I haven't started my shopping, but decorating began last night! Always love looking at lights again for the first time of the season :).

I've also been busy making Christmas cards~! And today I have another set to share with you that I created for Webster's Pages, using yet again their endlessly beautiful "Royal Christmas" collection.

"Royal Christmas" Card Set

When creating a card set, I like them to all have a uniform look, while being their own individual pieces. So for this set I chose a basic 6"x6" size, along with some of the beautiful Webster's Pages embellishments, stickers, and trim, and went to work.

You can't get much more "royal" than purple and gold! This was the first card I created of the set, and I just knew I had to try out the bold purple found in this collection. The gorgeous design found in the "Delights" paper worked perfectly for my background, and drew in both the gold and purple colors I was wanting to combine.

I also just love the Webster's Pages cameos, including this "Blue Bell" piece! And sentiments are made easy by using the "Word Block Stickers", also available in this collection.

 Card #2 ended up being my favorite :). I just love the classic gold and red combo! Some fussy cutting for some borders, paired with the "Lace Gold" trim to the left added some texture and interest to accompany the "highlight" of my card, which of course is my sentiment and StoryMarker.


The "Royal Christmas" StoryMarkers are breathtaking, aren't they?? I just love the elegant detail they add!

My final piece incorporated the subtle pink found in the collection, again with gold. I loved this "Pink Candy" Cameo and knew I just had to use it. So I paired it with the delicious treat motif from the "Greeting Cards" paper.
