Green and Gold Wishing You Joy This Holiday Season

This is my second attempt to create a Christmas Cards using green cardstock and the Memory Box Flowering Christmas Tree. I wanted something that would still be pretty, but not as expensive to create as the previous card that used a lot of gold mirror cardstock. Embossing powder is very inexpensive and so I pulled out Hero Arts Noel Prink Bold Background stamp and used VersaMark Ink to stamp it on Gina K. Designs Christmas Pine Cardstock and heat it with gold embossing powder. A scalloped rectangle was then used to cut it down and adhere it to a Christmas Pine cardbase.

Because the noel verbiage is pretty busy a sheet of vellum was cut with a smaller scalloped rectangle and the gold mirror Christmas tree was adhered to the front with spray adhesive. The sentiment was stamped in the upper right of the vellum rectangle and heat embossed gold.

The final embellishment was to add Ranger Christmas Stickles to the center of the flowers on the tree and the card was done.
