Elegant Christmas

Hi friends! Today's entry is a fairly simple card that I've been planning in my head ever since I picked up this silver cardstock from PaperTrey.

Sticking to my clean and simple kick of late, I was thinking silver embossing on the silver cardstock might be kind of interesting.  I really like this sentiment and the scroll (from PaperTrey) and simply stamped them in VersaMark, embossed with silver and added a few blue gems. I then matted with Enchanted Evening cardstock and popped the lot onto a silver cardstock base. It's unfortunate the sparkly goodness is so hard to capture in a picture. In real life it's quite pretty. Even my Mr. Wonderful liked it! High praise indeed.  Or, maybe he was just hungry and figured that would get him dinner sooner!  LOL

Go try something simple. You might just suprise yourself! Posted by Picasa


  1. Kathy, I need to try this myself! I never would have thought to emboss metallic on metallic, but it's given you great results! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Love the the embossed metallic on metallic. Will have to give it a try. Also love the colors and how simple it is with just a little bit pop.
