Classic & Elegant Cards – Day 3

Holiday Style

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.
