Rejoicing in Christmas

Today's Christmas card is elegant and simple, and my very favorite from the last stamp-a-stack. I used the set Rejoicing in Christmas (from the Holiday Mini) to make this card.

I really like the look of the tone-on-tone with the Very Vanilla cardstock. It's hard to see in the picture, but I jazzed it up just a bit by adding Dazzling Diamonds to the centers of the embossed poinsettias. I used Bravo Burgundy as my accent color on this card, but I think any dark, rich color would work. How about Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler or Soft Suede?

Have a super weekend! Our fall weather this past week has been spectacular, so I'm looking forward to getting outside with my family and enjoying these last few warm days. See you next week!

Stamps: Rejoicing in Christmas
Paper: Very Vanilla, Bravo Burgundy

Love you card. I cased it for my Stamp-A-Rama tomorrow. Cherry cobbler worked really well and I used square lattice embossing folder.
