Here's some info on what makes a "Classy and Elegant" card, courtesy of Cath at Moxie Fab World:
The classy and elegant style is polished. A shiny finish, sparkling embellishments, a rich color scheme, and sophisticated sentiment treatments are all part of the classy and elegant pedigree. Its look is regal, stunning, and dashing. And while its lines are clean, sweeping, and dramatic, it can also incorporate monochromatic color schemes with layered textures that awe and impress equally as well.
Moxie Fab World is celebrating Card Style Week with challenges that inspire you to create cards in each of the four styles featured in the Paper Crafts special issue that was just released: "Fun and Cute", "Clean and Graphic", "Shabby and Vintage" and "Classy and Elegant."
Here's my entry for the Card Style Classy and Elegant Challenge in the Moxie Fab World:
and this is the inside of the card:
The background paper is from Pink Paislee's 365 Degrees collection. I used SU cardstock in Natural White and Basic Black. The sentiment is from SU's "Occasional Quotes" set, which is a new Level 3 Hostess Set. I stamped the sentiment in Basic Black ink and finished off the card with some adhesive rhinestones and satin ribbon.
All of the Card Style contests run until August 2 at midnight MDT...so there's still time to get inspired and enter!
