Simple Elegance…and more Sea Glass!

SC355 blk

Trying to keep making a Christmas card or two a week so I’m not scrambling in December! Here’s one I made today… with the look of elegance but super quick and simple!

SC355 side

Once again, I used Christmas Lights Sea Glass from Mudd Puddles! I just used tweezers and picked out the blue pieces!
I stamped the Holiday Ornament from Our Daily Bread designs with Versamark, then heat embossed with Ranger Detail Gold EP, then used Spellbinders Holiday Tags.

My layers are Mirror paper from ODBD and just plain white, embossed and die cut with Spellbinders Classic Triple Scallop Edgeabilities. The greeting is also embossed in gold. This is also the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast.

SC355 MP Merry Christmas

Some ribbon tied with gold embroidery floss tops it off… and voila! Pure elegance! It’s really much prettier in person too…that mirror paper is a tough one to photo!

Don’t forget to check out the Mudd Puddles GIVE-AWAY!! Over $175 value…. FREE!!

I hope I’ve inspired you!
Thanks for stopping

Dawn

WOW! Beautiful card.
That Sea Glass sure does bring out the beauty of your card and what a great accent it gives.

This is gorgeous! I love the elegance! The blue sea glass with the gold embossing and white paper...really makes this amazing! Is the blue paper "mirror" paper, also? I hope it is available at ODBD. I have been searching for some. This is so beautiful, Dawn. You sure are having fun with all of those Mudd product...but who wouldn't? They are incredible!
