Rustic, Elegant Dove Card for Festive Friday

Rustic meets elegant in today’s rustic, elegant dove card. It’s Friday, and time to play with Festive Friday – home of the Inspo List!

For this week’s challenge,  we are inspired by National Cappuccino Day.  As you can see, my rustic, elegant dove card doesn’t look like it should be a card celebrating a hot drink. That’s because at Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion.  Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project.  I used:  Plaid, Ribbon/Twine, Die Cut, Pearls, Vellum, Cream/Ivory, Gold. I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

Colors of the Day
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Once again, the beautiful Detailed Dove dies take center stage on today’s card.  Plaid and wood grain designer papers lend a rustic feel, while the the Brushed Metallic gold die cuts add a touch of elegance.

Pearls and wooden elements, along with a braided linen trim bow, are the perfect accents.
