Day three had a ton of great ideas for making cards to look elegant. I was in awe of all the pretty choices and boy were they diverse in style. Instead of taking inspiration from one card in particular, I decided to just go with the flow and find my own class and elegant look.
I started out with a beautiful gold shimmer card stock. God Bless Anna Griffin for making such beautiful shimmery card stock. I wish all the others would take note and do the the same. I cannot, I repeat, cannot get enough of shimmer metallic card stock.
Then I took an beautiful die from Memory Box called Swirling Snowflakes to create a white snowflake overlay. Then using Papertrey Ink Christmas Cheer Die I cut out a white card stock and glitter paper (Tim Holtz) and offset them together to create the center of the card. To let it stand out more, I placed a band of vellum across the card. I finished with some sequins.
Just a note on the Papertrey Ink Christmas Cheer Die. I love, love, LOVE the retro style, 1950’s style writing of this die set. Thanks so much Papertrey Ink. Please feel free to design more word dies with this awesome font. I just cannot get enough of it.
Thanks for looking!
