Elegant Celebration

Well, the occasion wasn't necessarily elegant, but it was a celebration of achievement, and I used an elegant design. ;-)  Sometimes, a CAS design just speaks for itself. :)

Just in case you can't read the tag, it says "Someone like you should be celebrated every day."

I embossed the bashful blue cardstock with Elegant Lines embossing folder, wrapped the Early Espresso ribbon around & tied, and added the tag. Though the sentiment is from the set "It's Your Birthday," I love that this specific one doesn't have to be for a birthday.

Speaking of birthday sets, I am (not-so-patiently) waiting to get the newest one in the mini catalog - I knew I wanted that as soon as I saw it.  Go ahead and take a look-see (RH sidebar mini catalog) might want it, too! :)

Well, what do you think?

The Small Print (All Stampin' Up)
Stamps: It's Your Birthday
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Ink: Early Espresso
Accessories: Elegant Lines EF, Big Shot, Early Espresso satin ribbon, Circle Punch
Technique: Embossing

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a GREAT day! :)


  1. I'm not much into embossing but your card has changed my mind. What is your favorite embossing design?

  2. Hi Maria - glad I could change your mind, lol! :) I would have to say that the polka dots from yesterday's post is one of, if not my very favorite. It's more multi-purpose than the Elegant Lines I used on today's card (which I love), and ya gotta love supplies that give you more bang for your buck! :)

  3. Lovely card and I'm big time into embossing and I really like this folder. Thanks for blessing my day. :)

  4. Simply elegant! My favorite kind of card!

  5. I really like your card! This is also a very stupid question I'm sure, but what is CAS? I'll probably say, "Da" when I get the answer but right now it's just elluding me. Thanks!


Go ahead...make my day! :)
