CC247 Elegant New Year

I made this card for the CC247 Color Combo challenge, which you can find HERE. Soft Suede, Basic Black, and Very Vanilla combine for such a warm, elegant feeling. Makes me want to dress up for a winter Ball and sip hot cocoa all at once.
This is the first time I have layered papers, then run them through the Big Shot with the Top Note Die. I've seen many cards on SCS and on blogs that use this technique, but had not tried it. It was super easy and makes such a great card layer. I'll be doing this more often. The Soft Suede layer was sent through the Big Shot beforehand with the Perfect Details Texturz plate. Again, not something I use a lot, but I'm going to start. I love the simple elegance an embossed layer adds.
Christmas will be here soon. I will be finishing up our Christmas cards, which I am making with My Digital Studio. I will also be stamping some gift tags and tins, which I will post soon.

thanks for the lovely comment on my cards - I am pleased that you didn't mind!!!

I just thought that they were perfectly elegant and not so fussy that they'd put my Dad off!! He loved them and they got sent out before New Years Eve!
