Pretty Pines in Gold

Pretty Pines in Gold

It's beginning to feel just a little bit like fall today....I even noticed some leaves beginning to change.  I thought about posting a fall project but when I was finished with this card, I couldn't wait to share it!  So I'll post something fall-ish tomorrow.  

I had this idea in my head last night, and I was hoping that it would be as pretty on paper as it was in my doesn't always work out that way.   I pictured it to be very elegant, and I'm really happy with the way it turned out!  I love how all the layers of different textures work together!

To create this card, I started out with a piece of shimmery white cardstock.  I embossed the pine needles from the Christmas Pines stamp set in white embossing powder.  I then embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder.  I cut the pine pieces using the Pretty Pines thinlits out of three different papers--vellum, gold foil and gold glimmer--then adhered them to my card front with fast fuse adhesive (ok, and I was in a little bit of a hurry so I used a staple, too). The pinecones are two layers...the bottom is gold glimmer and the top is gold foil.  I layered these with fine-tip glue and adhered them over the pine boughs with fast fuse.  Next, the bow was attached with a glue dot.  Finally, I glued clear and gold sequins from the metallic sequins assortment with fine-tip glue.  I layered the card front onto a piece of gold foil, then onto my whisper white thick cardstock card base.

I hope you enjoyed today's project!  Until next time...happy stampin'!
