Elegant Christmas

Good morning, what a beautiful day it is! I have already been up and stamping and finished my first card so if I get nothing else done at least I accomplished something. Actually I have already dropped off oldest son at a scout activity and am doing laundry so I will be working on other things today but it always makes my day a little brighter when I can finish a card and share it with you. This card is one that I sketched last night. I had the background paper setting on my table for a while now and couldn't figure out what card to use it on then last night I decided that the Snow Swirled Stamp Set (111690) would look great with the paper. Now if you are trying to find the Designer Series Paper in the catalog you might not recognize it. The paper I used on this card is Bride Specialty Paper (115669), because it has a foil design that resist Classic Ink you can make the paper any color you would like. This idea has been on several blogs but the first I remember seeing it on was Patty Bennett's blog found at For mine I used the Brayer (102395) and Real Red Classic Ink (103133). After applying the ink simply take a paper towel and remove the excess ink from the foil area. The Tree is stamped in Versamark (102283) on Real Red Card Stock (102762) and embossed with White Embossing Powder (109132) and the Heat Tool (100005). I added Square Red Rhinestone Brads (109112) to add some sparkle to the tree. The base and matte layer are both Shimmery White Card Stock (101910).
There you have the finished card. Definitely not a hard card to make. I hope you enjoyed to day's simple but elegant card. I have lots of other Christmas card designs to make and remember that if you would like to make this or any of my Christmas Cards your personal Christmas card just contact me and I will help you place your supply order. Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by, Tonya
