Elegant Rejoicing

Good morning everyone! We made it to my parents' house yesterday! We are looking forward to a great time - as short as it will be! It's nice to have all the Christmas shopping/wrapping part done and to just sit back and wait for the big day! We will be going to my sister's house on Monday for our Christmas. So not too much going on until then. Just a lot of eating and playing games! And watching football (can't forget about that)!

So before I left home I wanted to make a bunch of cards to blog while I am gone. I also needed to get ahead on my design team cards. So I sat down and made a list of what could be Christmas cards and when I could start using my new products. This is one of the Christmas cards that I came up with. It uses Rejoicing With You and Elegant Eggplant. I kept it really simple. I embossed the top part of a piece of Elegant Eggplant with the Fancy Fan embossing folder and then I stamped the sentiment in Elegant Eggplant onto a piece of Elegant Eggplant. I took a strip of silver glimmer paper and punched the top with the scallop edge border punch and adhered it to hide the seam. I tied a piece of Whisper White taffeta ribbon around it and then adhered it to a piece of Whisper White. This is popped up onto a card base of Elegant Eggplant. Then I stamped the image in Elegant Eggplant onto Whisper White and cut it out. This is popped up onto the card. And there you have it! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

  1. Why don't I ever think to use purple for a Christmas card? It looks awesome, and that angel is such a beautiful image. Merry Christmas, Deb!
