Today’s card is another quick and easy one. The beautiful DSP and the silver trim make an elegant card, even though it is simple to make. The red flourished paper is perfect with Cherry Cobbler card stock as a card base, especially with a narrow white border behind the DSP. I also added a thin Cherry Cobbler strip across the middle of the card. The “Happy Christmas Wishes” stamp is from the Flourishing Filigree stamp set; I stamped it with Cherry Cobbler ink onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock.
The stamped image was cut with the Pretty Label punch. I also used the punch to cut two shapes from Cherry Cobbler card stock, and glued them to the back of the stamped image for a border and added thickness. I wound a couple of feet of silver metallic thread around my hand, and rolled it off in a somewhat neat wad (if there is such a thing!!). I then adhered the thread to the back of the image with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then to the thin Cherry Cobbler strip. I added two rhinestones, one on each end of the stamped image, and I stamped the inside corner of the card with a stamp from the Around the Corner set.
