Today’s card is not only Clean and Simple but elegant as well. I chose the Christmas Gleaming Bundle which includes the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set and the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack for this little beauty. You know I’m all about keeping it real and after I had cut my Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Piece and my Night of Navy Cardstock piece I realized I should have reversed them. You may be wondering why I had that thought. Well, I knew I wanted to showcase the 3 beautiful ornaments on this card and I felt like they would get lost on top of the ornament piece of designer series paper. At this point I had to put my thinking cap on and think outside of the box and I must say I’m quite pleased with the alternative I came up with. I grabbed my Copper Foil Layer and my Stitched Rectangle Dies and cut the rectangle for a background layer. By using the inside part of the Copper Foil layer, no one would be able to see I had removed a section. I also feel like the Copper Foil behind the ornaments has just enough flair to make them stand out. Wooosh, I wasn’t sure at first but once I had all the elements in place, I was thinking “nice save”. Let’s be honest, we’ve all been there 😉
I wanted my Night of Navy cardstock to have some texture and I accomplished this by using my Subtle Embossing Folder on it. The New Merry Christmas Classic Weave Ribbon was perfect for this card and I felt like the bow grounded it. When I placed my 3 ornaments, I put the 2 large ornaments side by side and popped the smaller ornament up with a Stampin’ Dimensional on top of them. For the inside of the card I chose the Deck the Halls sentiment and stamped it in Night of Navy along with the Large Ornament and also stamped the small ornament in Pretty Peacock. I hope you’ll agree that this card has a sophisticated feel to it and would make a lovely card to send to family and friends this holiday season.
