Simple yet Elegant Christmas Cards Part 1

This is the first of a few posts featuring simple yet elegant Christmas cards I’ve made. Sometimes, less is more, and not everybody wants an over-fussy card.

This card, in black, white and red, has a classic embossed background using an embossing folder. I used pearlescent card to show the embossing off to it’s best effect.

Poinsettia Card

The leafy flourish is a Marianne die and is cut from white glossy cardstock. The layered poinsettia (also a Marianne die) is cut from mirri silk and mirri gloss red card. The centre has some gold adhesive ‘gems’.

I added a gold Glitteration greeting to finish this quick and easy card.
