elegant Peace easy Christmas card

Hello, friends!

I hope you are all having a great week!

Today I have another super easy card made using one of the file you can buy from Provo Craft. This is my favorite of all of the ones that they are selling! I chose a silver, white, and red color scheme. However, I can see this card in red and green, blue and silver, or white and gold. This is just a super elegant card! Here is the link in which you can purchase the cut: Holiday Card 17

CCR file: https://www.box.com/s/ykcu0fpwdou5sig71llx

I used white cardstock and glitter paper in red and silver.
I used a circle paper punch to cut out the red circles and glued them in place before I glued down the silver paper.

Again I added pearls to give it just that little bit more!
See you guys back here tomorrow with another project!

Gorgeous card sure doesn't look easy but you always make the most of what ever you chose to create! I love you choice for paper and color too! I wonder if Provo Craft will come out with a cartridge with all of these cuts on it something they might consider.

DIane Warburton said...

Gosh this is indeed very elegant. I've forgotten to sign into CCR this week, so haven't seen what's on offer. Think I might just have to go and pay a visit now. I tried a couple of the first holiday cards but they didn't work out well for me but that was down to a few reasons, such as an old blade. Thanks for the reminder to go and visit CCR :-)

Ann Diehl said...

Wow! This card is SO beautiful. I have never been to the CCR. I just don't have the time & it's very hard to get on the computer as dear hubby tends to hog it. Guess I should ask Santa for a laptop, huh?
