There are two elements that make my card design elegant: 1) the already mentioned elegant script writing and 2) the embossing. It is amazing how the Sizzix Embossing Folders can make a single layer white card so pretty.
Did you notice how the center of the 3-1/2" x 5" Whisper White Note Card is smooth and not embossed? I used my new 3-1/2" x 5" Embossing Folder Chipboard Template with a 2-3/8" x 3-1/2" rectangle opening. The template allows me to emboss everywhere but the center and leave it smooth for stamping.

I used the new Snow Burst Embossing Folder from the Stampin' Up! 2011 Holiday Mini Catalog. How pretty!
Look at the inside of the card . . .
The inside smooth area is perfect for the "Rejoicing with you . . ." greeting. I love how the greeting greeting looks framed. I did this for one of my stampers who likes to add her own message. She will have plenty of room in the only 3-1/2" x 5" card.
Simple and elegant card design with one rubber stamp set and an embossing folder and the 3-1/2" x 5" Whisper White Note Cards with Envelopes. The cards are already cut and scored for you! It just doesn't get much easier than that.
