This card is from over a year ago. I needed to make a card for an alphabet swap for the letter "E". After looking through all my stamps and even the dictionary for ideas and options and drawing a blank, I asked my husband and he said, "E is for elegant." I said, "Great idea!" So I made what I hoped was an elegant card.
The background is a shimmery gold paper. I used Stampin' Up!'s Heat and Stick Powder and black flocking with SU!'s Baroque Motif set. That panel is mounted on Basic Black cardstock. The medallion is stamped on a textured black paper and embossed with detail gold embossing powder. The center of the medallion is mounted on a thick dimensional and then I added a brad. The word "Elegance" is printed on vellum on my ink jet printer and then embossed with the same gold embossing powder. I thought the double layer of ribbon added a little more elegance.
(This description is pretty much copied from what I had written when I posted it to SplitCoastStampers.)
Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
