Nothing says Christmas more than the gorgeous smell of a fresh pine tree and shiny baubles to hang on it. The card I have to share with you today has both of those. We made this is in our class on Sunday and it is a fabulous design for mass production. I wanted to combine some new products with a favourite from last year.
The hero of this card is the gorgeous new 'Pine Bough' embossing folder. I have embossed the thick Whisper White and it gives a beautiful deep impression without any cracking of the card stock. I find the new Big Shot platform in this year's Annual Catalogue gives a better result for dry embossing overall. I think this results from the more even pressure over the entire plate.
I have die cut the smallest bauble from my favourite 'Delicate Ornaments' Thinlits in the gorgeous new Copper Foil and backed it with some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper for lots of sparkle. At the top is a bow in the new Emerald Envy Silky Taffeta ribbon that comes in a combo pack with Cherry Cobbler. The richness of the Cherry Cobbler pairs so well with the brightness of the Emerald Envy. The little banners are cut from the new 'Presents & Pinecones' designer paper and I have punched out some 1/8" circles in the Copper Foil to finish it off. The greeting is from the new 'Christmas Pines' stamp set and is stamped in Early Espresso.
For the inside, I have add a bit more of the embossed pine bough in the corner and some of the striped design from the 'Presents & Pinecons' washi set. Just love the coordination of all of the products in this suite. It makes creating so easy.
