This is a super simple card. Everything is cut with Nestabilities (circle, scalloped circle and Label 4). I embossed the red circle with the swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder, then went over the swirls with a Versamarker and embossed with gold. I added a small pearl to the end of each swirl. For the top I cut a scrap with one of my scalloped square nesties, then trimmed it to size, embossed with gold and added the three pearls. For the hanger I simply bent a piece of beading wire and glued it to the back.
For the card base I folded a piece of ivory cardstock in half and cut it with the largest scalloped circle nestie, leaving a small piece attached at the top. I decided after I put the three pieces next to each other than the ivory was too light. I thought gold would be a better color, but I didn't have any gold paper, so I colored the outside of the ivory piece with a gold Sharpie paint marker and added the pearls to each scallop.
I stamped the sentiment on black then embossed it with gold. I added the ribbon and poinsettia. The poinsettia is made from transparency and colored with alcohol inks. I added tiny gold marbles to the center. I originally intended the sentiment to be stamped on transparency as well, but was not happy with how that was looking. So I hope my little flower is enough to count for the OCC challenge.
I wanted to do something different for the envelope. Rather than using a plain square envelope, I made the envelope from a hexagon petal card template than I downloaded from Mirkwood Designs. I decorated the front with gold embossed holly leaves and attached a label. Since it's not likely I will mail this card, I just used a small label for the name. The bottom two pictures so the envelope open and closed. I would hold the envelope closed with some kind of embellishment.
This was a fun card. I'm not sure how often I will make my own envelopes, but it was a good exercise in creativity.
That's about it for now. Thanks for stopping by!
