Classy & Elegant

I'm sure you all saw the gorgeous eye candy last week during the Card Style series on Moxie Fab World.  So many wonderful cards!  I thought I'd play along with the Classy and Elegant challenge.  I made a set of cards using last year's exclusive CHA set from Papertrey Ink.  The sentiments are from Enjoy the Ride.  Click on the photos below to see them bigger.


The colors are Terracotta Tile, Plum Pudding, Melon Berry and Hawaiian Shores.  I stamped the images on Vintage Cream backed by some black cardstock.  The black makes the colors pop even more.  I pierced some holes beneath the sentiment on the "happy for you" and "congratulations" cards just for a bit more detail.








All products from Papertrey Ink unless noted

Stamps:  Floral Fusion (2009 CHA set), Enjoy the Ride
Paper:  Vintage Cream, True Black
Ink:  Terracotta Tile, Plum Pudding, Hawaiian Shores, black (memento), Groovy Guava (SU!)
Accessories:  satin ribbon (papertrey), black brads (making memories), slit punch (SU!), paper piercer, foam dimensionals
