OCC Day 3

I am catching up with my 'homework' from the online card class - Holiday Style.   Today's card is from day 3 where the theme was Classic and Elegant.

I had a different idea in my head when I started this card - but I still like the way it turned out.

The background is HA Winter Trees Scene and the sentiment is from the new Holly Jolly stamp set from Essentials by Ellen.  First I had the vellum layer the same size as the card, thinking it would soften the background.  But then I wasn't sure how to attach the vellum piece to the card!? So I thought of cutting a tag shape instead.  I used the Avery Elle circle tag die and was able to use a glue dot hidden behind the ribbon to attach it.   My first attempt at the sentiment was to emboss it in gold, trying for more of the classy/elegant look. Somehow the gold didn't look quite right, so I ended up with a white sentiment instead.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you are able to catch up with your class homework this weekend too!



  1. I really LOVE this card, Laura! Your vellum circle is so unexpected and I love the deep blue and white winter scene for your background! So pretty!

  2. Beautiful card! Don't you just love the way that projects will take a life of their own and determine how they'll turn out? That's one of my favorite parts of crafting.


Thanks for taking the time to comment! It makes my day!
