Simply Elegant!

My DH asked if I would make a card for his boss-lady, so I thought I'd impress her with some satin and bling!
I stamped a Hero Arts greeting on Stampin' Up Purely Pomegranite cardstock using Brilliance silver ink and heat embossed it with Clear Hologram EP, then cut it using the Nestabilities Curved Rectangle die and cut a larger one in black cardstock to layer it on. I layered these onto a piece of pearl/white Christina Re designer paper, then onto a layer of black cardstock and another layer of Purely Pomegranite edged with a silver Krylon pen. The ribbon is also SU Purely Pomegranite and the ribbon slider is by Bella. Added some silver rhinestones to the black curved rectangle.

I don't usually decorate the inside of my cards, but I just added some black cardstock, a strip of the same designer paper on the front and stamped a greeting in Brilliance silver ink.

Close-up to show the dimension of the layers, and to give you a better look at the designer paper. I popped both of the curved rectangles onto dimensional dots. The finished card size is 5" x 7".

what a super card Lyn, I'm sure your hubby is just as impressed as his boss lady too. I'll have to read up on these Nestabilities and quite how you 'cut' those shapes. I was quite worried about my eyes when I came to your site; I thought I was seeing lots of tiny white dots fluttering in front of my eyes! :)
