Elegant Ornament

Today I'm going to share another stamp club project we made this week.  Although embossing in silver or gold is a great way to add elegance to your holiday cards, there is an easier way... go with browns.  Stamping with Soft Suede or Early Espresso ink, coordinating with matching paper, and using a clean background will give your cards a classic vintage elegance.

Stamping three ornaments, folding in half, and gluing together gives the image great dimension.  The top half of the background is embossed with the Stripes embossing folder, and I added tulle for extra interest and touch-ability.  Stampin' Up no longer carries gold cording, so I picked mine up at a local craft store.

And here is the inside.

Stamps: Ornament Keepsakes, Greetings of the Season; Paper: Early Espresso, Whisper White, Candlelight Christmas DSP; Ink: Early Espresso; Accessories: Early Espresso scalloped tulle, Gold cording, Stripes EF, Big Shot.

Thanks for stopping by!
