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!
