Welcome to week 15 and the final week of Heart of Christmas for this year.
I feel like I'm still catching my breathe after a whirlwind 2 weeks in the United States. I attended the Stampin' Up! 30th Anniversary OnStage event in Orlando, Florida as well visiting the home office in Riverton, Utah. I had a few days at the end to do a bit sightseeing and shopping.
So today, I have a simple and hopefully elegant card for you. Simple and elegant is what you need at this time of the year as we get closer to December. I want to use up the lovely Joyous Noel designer paper and this layout is perfect.
I started with a Merry Merlot card base and added the copper foil accented reindeer designer paper from the Joyous Noel Specialty pack. A 1" flagged banner in Merry Merlot card stock is positioned slightly towards the bottom edge and the Copper Foil label from the Stitched Label Framelits is centred on top. The greeting from the Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set is stamped in Merry Merlot and die cut with a stitched oval framelit.
I added a Braided Linen Trim bow and coloured some Clear Epoxy Droplets with a Bronze Stampin' Blend to finish. I felt it needed something extra, so I added the heart from the retired Metallic Enamel Shapes, also coloured with the Bronze Stampin' Blends marker.
For the inside, I have a Gray Granite mat for the writing panel and I added the greeting from the Dashing Deer stamp set to the centre with Merry Merlot ink. The striped copper washi from the Suite Season Specialty set was added at the bottom and the deer was stamped in Gray Granite ink.
