Flurry of Wishes... Merry Christmas

I love the elegant feel of this card...
The Very Vanilla and Early Espresso accents make this a gorgeous card, don't you agree??

Leave me a comment below, and let me know what you think!

We start our card with a Very Vanilla card base, then added another layer of Very Vanilla card stock embossed with the Boughs & Berries Embossing Folder.  This tone-on-tone embossing is one of the things that I think really gives this card an elegant feel.

Before we added this layer to our card, we put a strip of the Very Vanilla Subtle Stripes Satin Ribbon across the card - another element that adds to the elegance of this card!

Next, we stamped our snowflake (from the Flurry of Wishes Stamp Set) in Early Espresso ink and punched it out with the coordinating Flower Medallion Punch.  I love that Stampin' Up created this snowflake in the shape of an already-existing flower punch - that makes 2 great uses for just one punch! 

We also added on those gorgeous Metal Rimmed Pearls to the center of our snowflake.  I absolutely love these pearls!  Here's what Stampin' Up has to say about these pearls (I couldn't agree more!):  "Keep it classy with these Metal Rimmed Pearls. White pearl embellishments have silver rims for an extra touch of elegance."

Finally, we stamped "Merry Christmas" (also from the Flurry of Wishes Stamp Set) in Early Espresso ink.

I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I obviously do!
