Freshly Made Gold

2012 Faves


Had a little down time today so decided to make a card.  I combined this week's Freshly Made Sketch with this week's Paper Players challenge to use silver or gold on your card.  Bonus for me, I used both :)

Just love this tree die by Verve and the 3D trees I have seen in blog land using it, so I decided to make one for this card.  I punched it out three times, scored each one down the middle, folded them, and then glued them together to form the tree.  Then I created a snow bank by free cutting a rolling hill and adding glitter to it for snow.  A few touches of silver twine and my Christmas card was complete :)

Sorry about the dark picture :(    It is a horribly, dark and dreary day here today.  Great stamping weather, but not good for picture taking!

I want to sneak in another card before I have to vacuum the house and fold some laundry so better get going.  Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday :)



What's In It?
Stamps: Peace on Earth (Verve)
Paper: Gold, White
Ink: Black
Accessories:  Tree Die (A Cut Above by Verve), Silver Twines (Michael's), Glue Pen, Glitter, Corner Rounder,

Gorgeous, Marisa. The tree is fabulous but I also love that you have the silver bow on top of the tree and the silver elastic cord at the bottom of your fabulous winter scene.
So glad you joined the Paper Players this week
