Elegant Christmas

I made this card for Angel's (Angelosity) Challenge/Blog Candy. I really had fun making this card. I'm beginning to love making simple elegant cards. I tend to gravitate towards busy cards but lately, I've been switching back and forth from busy to simple

This card is for today's sketch #19: Click Here for the sketch. Angel will be giving a big prize on the day of her birthday which is day 31 (I think). Okay. . .I sort of messed up on the sketch because the square (primary image) suppose to be smaller. I realized that I had over matted the card and it just was too big to match the sketch exactly. I didn't want to start over so I decided to keep it. The card matches the sketch if you don't take into account the layering.

I heat embossed the images with SU gold embossing powder. In person, the images are very glittery. I love it. Simple but flashy at the same time. Yay!

I decided to change the orientation of my primary image because as I stated earlier, I made the primary image too big by layering it the way I did. It would have fit perfectly if I didn't mat it.

Anyway. . .it's the same card as the first one. . .just the orientation is different. Which one do you like better?
Card Details:
Stamps: SU Etruscan
Paper: SU Handsome Hunter, Real Red, Close to Cocoa, Beige (unknown)
Accessories: SU Gold Embossing Powder, Organdy Ribbon, JoAnn Brad

I like them both! They are both beautiful cards, but my eye is drawn towards the second one. Amazing how twisting the square to look like a diamond makes such a difference! Very Elegant!

Beautiful card. I like them both but I like the 2nd one better. It stands out more with the square angled. JoAnn B.
