A Golden Christmas Card using Perfectly Plaid and the Pine Tree Punch


  • Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set
  • A Gold Foil and Gold Embossed Christmas Card
  • Giant Year End Sale and Clearance Rack Sale Continues
I'm in full Christmas Card creation mode and using so many of the fun items.  One of my favorite stamp and punch sets is the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set and the coordinating Pine Tree Punch.  A Christmas Card just seems so much more special when you add Gold Foil and Gold Embossing to the card.  That's just what I did to the card I created today.  I also used the So Many Snowflakes Dies to add a beautiful Gold Foil snowflake along with the embossed pine trees.  'Tis the season for plaid as well, and I'm using one of the beautiful plaids from the Plaid Tidings 6" X 6" Designer Series Paper.  Sparkly cards make my eyes happy!

The basecard is Thick Very Vanilla cardstock.  Then a layer of Gold Foil Sheets on the top portion of the card, and a layer of Plaid Tidings 6" X 6" Designer Series Paper on the bottom portion.  Then I die cut a snowflake from So Many Snowflakes out of Gold Foil as well as a Gold Foil circle using the Stitched Shapes Dies and added them to the card front.  The Gold Foil Stitched Circle is popped up on Dimensionals.

I selected one of the Pine Tree stamps from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set and used Versamark Ink to stamp it onto the Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Cardstock.  Then I covered it with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and set it with my Heat Tool.  I punched 3 Pine Trees using the Pine Tree Punch and layered them on top of the Stitched Gold Foil Circle. I also het embossed one of the sentiments from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set in Gold Embossing Powder onto Very Vanilla Cardstock and popped it up on Dimensionals.  To add a little bling, I added Gold 3/8" Metallic Edge Ribbon and several Gold Metallic Pearls.
