Simply Elegant

Joyful Christmas, Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, Vellum, Stained GlassHere’s a simple, but elegant, card we’ll be making next week.  I got the idea from Ronda Wade, then tweaked it a little with some ideas from my friend Christine Giuda’s card (here).

I stamped the poinsettia image from Joyful Christmas two times on Vellum card stock with Gold Encore Metallic ink, then embossed with gold powder.  I colored one with a Cherry Cobbler marker, then the other with Blushing Bride.  I cut them out, and layered the center of the Blushing Bride flower on top of the Cherry Cobbler flower with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Easy!  A little Dazzling Details for the center, a Garden Green sentiment and you’re ready to layer it to the card.

Didn’t you love Rachel’s tutorial yesterday?  When I saw her blog post, I had to reblog it.  She did such a wonderful job of explaining the flowers.  Honestly, I tried to make them several times a year or so ago, and they just looked horrible.  Rachel’s tutorial made it so easy.  Tomorrow I’ll be posting another card that I liked – but there was just something a little off.  So when she stopped by today, I asked for advice.  She told me exactly what I was thinking (yay!!), but I wanted to be sure I was on the right track before I started cutting.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy – and have a wonderful day!
