A touch of Gold Foil and the Pine Wood Dies create a stunning Christmas Card

  • Stampin' Up! Wrapped In Christmas Stamp Set
  • Pine Wood Die
  • Last Day to order September Paper Pumpkin Monthly Kit

I used the Pine Wood Dies again to create this lovely Christmas card.  I added a touch of sparkle by adding Gold Foil underneath one of the detailed tree die cuts.  The sentiment is from the Stampin' Up! Wrapped In Christmas Stamp Set, and the embossed background is created using the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing folder.  I can't wait to send these as my Christmas cards this year! 

Christmas Card with embossed card front and a Gold Foil Christmas Tree

The basecard for this card is Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock.  Then a layer of Very Vanilla dry embossed using the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I used another piece of Very Vanilla and die cut a layer for my tree image using one of the dies from the Hippo & Friends Dies.

I used the Pine Woods Dies to cut the Very Vanilla detailed tree image.  I first backed the Very Vanilla cardstock with a piece of Adhesive Sheets.  I used another die from the Pine woods Dies to cut a tree shape from gold Foil Sheets to mount behind the detailed tree.  Then I removed the backing from the Adhesive Sheet to adhere the detailed Very vanilla tree to the Gold Foil Sheet.  You could use Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Fine-Tip Glue Pen instead of the Adhesive Sheet, but I didn't want to get glue on my Gold Foil Sheet, and since I was making multiples of this card, I found that I saved considerable time using the Adhesive Sheets rather than meticulously applying glue to the back of the detailed tree die cut.

For the sentiment, I stamped the Christmas Blessing sentiment from the Wrapped in Christmas Stamp Set in Versamark ink, covered it with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder, and set it with my Heat Tool. I used my bone folder to create the wavy look on my sentiment layer. I created a double bow using Gold 3/8" Metallic Edge Ribbon and added it to the corner of my card.  I added 3 Gold Metallic Pearls to my image layer to pull together the gold elements used on this card.
