And my version of an elegant card:
I used Bravo Burgundy cardsotck for the base, and matted it with a dark green PP that had a slight pattern to it. Then I cut out an embossed circle that reminded me of lace in a cream paper, and added the JOY stamp punched out onto the cream paper and popped up with foam squares. A little bit of bling completed the look.
Creative Memories: Noel Paper Pack, Foam Squares.
Stampin' Up: Bravo Burgundy Cardstock, Lacy Brocade embossing folder, Joyous Celebration stamp set, Bravo Burgundy Ink, Garden Green Ink, Basic Rhinestone jewels, large oval punch.
