Be merry {Purple Onion Designs}

Hi, everyone! I have a very clean and simple Christmas card to share today, featuring little Timothy from Purple Onion Designs. I love this little hedgehog, he’s so cute.

My card is heavily inspired by a card Tenia Nelson shared last week on Instagram. If you don’t already follow her, you should. She has a very clean and simple style, and is a master at using white space on her cards. Occasionally, you’ll even find music performances on her feed, she’s a professional musician too! Very talented lady, definitely worth a follow!

Tenia’s card had a wide piece of washi tape going in from the right near the top of the card, with a rectangle perpendicular to the washi with a couple of small colored flowers on top, a sentiment and a few enamel dots. Once I’d ink blended a little bit using Audrey Blue and Island Blue inks from Simon Says Stamp, I tried to add a rectangle to my card, but it was too long and too wide for my liking. I scrapped that idea and die cut a polaroid frame instead for my little hedgehog to sit in. I used the second smallest die from the Precious Polaroids die set from My Favorite Things, and stacked four on top of each other for dimension. The die cut was just big enough to stamp a sentiment onto. The shortest sentiment in the Snowflake Grove Sentiment set was the perfect size.

I added a few snowdrift sprinkles from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards, and my card was complete. Lots of white space, a cute hedgehog and one more Christmas card in the bank for 2021. Doesn’t get much better than that!

Super limited color palette for this tiny image.
