Christmas Blessings

When I first saw this stamp set in the new catalog I just fell in love with the pretty images!  I also thought how pretty this would be using just Very Vanilla and gold.  I was fight!  I LOVE how this card turned out.  I did this card for a Control Freak Swap for Christmas cards.

This is one of my favorite things to do with a card…make it look like  an odd size when it is really a normal size card.  The base of the card is 3 1/4 x 11 folder.  I took another piece of Very Vanilla, ran it through the Lacey Brocade Embossing Folder and added to the card front.  I embossed the greeting on the bottom using Gold Embossing Folder.  I took a piece of Champagne Glimmer paper, cut into a banner and added to the card front.  I cut out a panel using the Apothecary Accents framelits, stamped the poinsettia image in Versamark and gold embossed, added a gold brad to the top then added the banner to the card front using dimensionals.

Such a simple card but oh so elegant!
