Everyone looks good in a black dress. Similarly, every card looks good in white and....any other color. At least that's what I believe in. Thrown in any color with white and the result is amazing. So whenever I want to make a quick card, that's where I go to.
The card is a simple, minimally fussy creation with a beautiful stamped ornament from Justrite.
The paper is from Recollections Christmas pad. The only effort in this card was cutting all the different layers. While it may not seem so, there are six different layers on top of the base card and yeah, I hate repetitive cutting or repetitive anything. But the result was so worth it....
The ornament is minimally colored with my gel pens - sometimes they work wonder, especially in coloring tight places. They have a really fine nib. The sentiment is also from the same collection of Justrite stamps. I used the coordinating spellbinder dies to cut out the stamped portion. The ornament is hanging using layered strips of white and red paper.
I think I bought the ribbon at the Walmart store but it was so long ago, I truly do not remember. It is quite pretty with a line of pearls running through it. I had to cut out a few pearls at the end on either side so the ribbon laid flat as I tucked it under the card layers.
