Here is my card for the hop:
This is a bit different than my usual style. Don't faint - there is no patterned paper or coloring on today's card! I wanted to get a start on my Christmas cards and I always need a few that are more elegant than whimsical. I started with a 5x7 card base of GKD Heavy Base Weight Ivory cardstock. The next layer is the largest of the Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles dies. I stamped the script from Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3428 Script Christmas Tree PreCut Set with Versamark and heat embossed with Gold Ultrafine Embossing Powder. I created a window frame with a Spellbinders Floral Ovals die. I stamped the poinsettia flowers from HCPC 3415 Petite Poinsettias Set onto GKD Layering Weight Ivory with Versamark and heat embossed with gold EP. The individual flowers were cut out with Spellbinders Layered Poinsettias dies and shaped and layered to create a 3-D poinsettia flower. I added a few burgundy pearls to the flower center. A bow of Burgundy May Arts silk ribbon and a few ivory pearls on the frames finished my card.
