Gold and white Christmas


I'm trying to keep a slow but steady pace on making Christmas cards this year. This is the latest, using the current sketch from Sketch Saturday.

I used glittery gold EP from Powder Keg, which I'm pretty sure has been out of business for a while. On one white snippet, I gold-embossed a tree (Manufacturer unknown) and on another I gold-embossed the sentiment (Hero Arts?  -- yes, I am being very helpful on the supply list today, aren't I?).
I embossed a 1/4 sheet snippet with the Swiss dot folder and cut it in two, applying the wider piece to my base card. Following the sketch, I used gold washi tape for the line between the embossed and unembossed areas and created a little fish-tail flag. I matted the gold tree on a snippet of gold paper, added it to the card, The sentiment has fish-tail ends on both sides.
I made a second, similar card to use up the other Swiss-dot-embossed snippet, using a gold-embossed ornament image that's been sitting around since before Christmas as the main image. So, two cards done.
