Welcome to this weeks Card Sketch with the Paper Craft Crew as I feature a Christmas Elegance Card!  I just love getting into the crafting spirit as Thanksgiving and Christmas get closer and this week I enjoyed creating some beautiful Christmas Cards.  Here is my rendition of the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #16

Christmas Elegance Card

 Here is the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 16 (PCCCS016):

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 16

I will be the first to admit that I wasn't 100% on board with this sketch and not certain how the "random" circle elements would fit into a card but as I started playing, I found inspiration and created a beautiful Christmas Elegance Card.  The main feature on my card is the Ornament which I cut out using the Ornament Framelit then I embossed the ornament using the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder.  I also embossed the background using the Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder.  Next, I layered Old Olive under a strip of Cherry Cobbler for the added "Christmas" colors.  The scalloped edge is created using the Finishing Touches Edgelits die.  The stamp set I used on this card is the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set from the Holiday Catalog.  I used a sentiment from the Tiny Tags stamp set which I punched out with the Jewelry Tag punch.  The pearls worked great and pulled the design into play as the "random" circle elements – I actually love how the pearls have an added elegance to the card.  My bow to "anchor" the ornament is the Cherry Cobbler Scalloped Tulle Ribbon.

So, what do you think?  I've fallen in love with the Scalloped Tulle Ribbon and love dressing up my cards and look forward to using it on Christmas Gifts as well this year.
