Silver snowflakes on purple

A Christmas card with silver glitter snowflakes on a purple background splattered with silver paint.

After making the set with the gold snowflakes on red, I pondered making a more contemporary set with silver snowflakes on purple — I quickly decided that it would be a nice alternative and would give me another much-needed small batch of cards — and so I did.

A close-up of the sentiment and one of the snowflakes on the card.

It’s very rare that I repeat designs, but these are exceptional times and, in the spirit of making life simple for myself, I duplicated the layouts of each card from the gold and red variants.

All four variants of the Christmas card design with the snowflakes and sentiment banner in different positions on each card.
