Embossed Gold Tree
This card is being entered in the StampTV MIUM Challenge – STV14MON41 – “Christmas Comes Early” where our card project should be Christmas themed. (http://stamptv.ning.com/forum/topics/mix-it-up-monday-challenge-stv14mon41-christmas-comes-early)
It is also being entered in the Perfectly Rustics “PR Design Challenge No. 34 – Holidays” where we are to show our holiday creations (any holiday). (http://perfectlyrustics.com/2014/10/20/prdc-no-34-holidays/)
The card stock used is Gina K dark chocolate. The background die is Spellbinders A2 Filigree Delight. After cutting out the die, I covered the entire surface with versamark ink and then heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. The center oval panel was also heat embossed in gold with stamps from the Gina K Designs “Cheers Mini Stamp Set” and was cut using the oval die also from the Filigree Delight set. A piece of gold cording was tied along the fold. I was trying to keep the card easy to duplicate and flat so it is easy to mail.
I tried the card in Christmas Pine and Cranberry Tart as well. I really like it with the Dark Chocolate, though.
Thanks for checking out my post!
