Wrapped in Plaid Christmas Card II

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared a card that I created using up some of my larger pieces of scraps from the Holiday Retreat cutting … now I have a leftover gold Christmas tree!  So what else would I do but use it on my next card!! Today I have that card for you …

Besides my Christmas tree, I had the squares left over as well which I layered onto a gold background to pull the gold out of the Wrapped in Plaid Designer paper.  Since I wanted the tree to be my focal point of my card, I added a piece of Vellum Cardstock cut from the Stitched Framelits Dies. I then embossed my Christmas tree with the Country Floral embossing folder.

The base of my card is Shaded Spruce which coordinates with the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Paper, to create a dramatic contrast I added a piece of Cherry Cobbler behind the gold. I embossed the ends of the Cherry Cobbler with the Country Floral embossing folder as well to add some texture and to coordinate with my tree.

The greeting comes from the beautiful Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set from the Brightly Gleaming Suite in the Holiday Catalog.

A simple card really … just some layers to create an elegant look and feel.  I love the way it turned out.  Hmmm … who would know this card was created from scraps!! The secrets our stamp rooms keep. lol

Thank you for joining me today!

I hope you take a moment to enjoy this beautiful fall day.
