Christmas Elegance

Merry Monday has a very broad theme this week- Elegant Christmas cards. Elegance to me is rich colours, cream, jewels and lace, so I kept that in mind when creating my card.

 
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.

Supplies used:
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.
Other: Cuttlebug
