While in the midst of addressing my Christmas cards last week, I discovered that I was 5 short (which actually turned out to be 3 when I found two cards hiding in a stack of papers). So I had a quick mass-production party and created 6 cards (now I have a head start on next year!). The bases are a nice, deep purple. The white panels were dry embossed and then cut with the stitched rectangle. Then I heat embossed the sentiment in the center and added 3 silver rhinestones. Quick and easy, but really quite beautiful.
And here is a closer look:
