HOLIDAY ELEGANCE


This elegant card was made at Archiver’s at the Holiday Elegance Card Workshop. Except for a few small alterations, I pretty much followed the instructions.

We started by stamping the long swirl stamp four times on the front of the pine green card with Versamark Ink and embossing them with Holographic embossing powder.

Season’s Greetings was stamped twice on two 2 ½ x 3 ½ pieces of red cardstock and embossed with clear embossing powder. As you can see, I used gold ep, instead. We then carefully cut out the holly leaves from one of the pieces. Using small Pop Dots, the holly was adhered over the complete holly swirl image.

The golden edge around the Season’s Greetings was added using a Gold Leafing Pen and the entire piece was adhered to the centre of the card with Pop Dots. The swirls in the background and the centre of the holly were embellished with clear gem stones, but I used pearls for that.

A sheer cream ribbon finished off the card beautifully!

All stamps by Stampendous:

This IS very elegant! I wish embossing powder and I had a better relationship than we do. I could use some elegance in my life. :)
