Elegant Christmas

Hello everyone!  For my project today, I would like to show you my first Christmas card of the season.  I tried to keep it simple but elegant.  On the ornament, I used a glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds on the flourishes and added a little silver Stickles for the dots.  The pictures does not do the card justice as the Dazzling Diamond just makes the ornament sparkle in real life. 

The base of the card is whisper white cardstock with another piece of whisper white on top. The next layer I used a piece of gold mirror cardstock from my stash which I edged with the Scallop Trim border punch.  I embossed the Whisper White layer with the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder leaving 1" on the bottom for the greeting which I stamped in Basic Black from the Snow Swirled set. 

After adhereing the two layers together, I punch the scallop circle with my new 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Extra-Large punch.  I tied some sheer white ribbon from my stash around these two layers and tied a bow. 

I had some Stampin Up Silver Elastic Cord left over from the 2009 Holiday Mini that I also used to tie a bow on the white ribbon.  This layer is popped up with dimensionals.

The ornament was stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink and punched out with the Ornament Extra-Large punch.  I used a glue pen on the flourishes and sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds and a little bit of Silver Stickles for the dots.
