Ornament Keepsakes gone chic!


A simples simples card today.  

I've used a Basic Black card base with a mat of Brushed Gold card stock then a panel of Whisper White.  I stamped the sentiment from Choc Full of Cheer in Versamark then embossed in gold.  I pierced a dotted line underneath.  I then stamped one of the ornaments from Ornament Keepsakes (did you notice that this set made it into the Spring/Summer mini catalogue?) in Versamark onto Basic Black.  I embossed this with gold also then cut out with my paper snips.  You can use framelits to die cut these ornaments but i didn't want a black border on this one.  I then popped it up on a dimensional. 

I've attempted to go elegant chic for Merry Monday this week which is looking for an elegant theme.  You should check out the DT cards, they are fab! 

CAS-ual Fridays determined my colour scheme - Black, White and 1 other (I've chosen Gold). 

And for my design I followed the sketch at CASe This Sketch
