Simple, yet elegant

I totally CASED this card from Madeline on Splitcoast. You can see her card HERE. Her's is a little more fancy than mine. She used another layer (or two) and used a corner punch on her layers. But I like mine a lot just how it is!



I used a coluzzle to cut a circle in some cardstock and then used that as a reverse mask. I sponged in the ink and then stamped the snowflakes from my Stampin Up "Snow Flurries" set randomly. Then I punched out the top of the "ornament" from foil (didn't have any silver cardstock but hey it worked great!). I added the hook with a silver gel pen. The greeting is from Clear Dollar Stamps. Lastly I layered onto the card and added the bow.

Easy peasy and it looks really elegant. I could see doing this card next year for the holidays.

Thanks for looking!

Jane
