Little Gold Tree

What a crazy time of year this is! Slowly but surely I'm working through my "to do" list.  I've even got dinner started on time today!


Here's a very simple card with the tree stamped and embossed in gold. It's matted onto Brushed Gold and an embossed piece of Very Vanilla.  The star is punched from Champagne Glimmer. 

I wish the shine of the embossing showed up better in the photo.  It really is a simple, elegant card.

I'm going to enter it in the Addicted to Stamps challenge where there's an inspiration photo this time.


The gold of the lights on the tree and the fire inspire gold embossing and tree.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Evergreen
Ink:  Encore Gold
Cardstock:  Very Vanilla, Brushed Gold, Champagne Glimmer

Enjoy!

You're right, Bonnie. This is very elegant. I can see it with another stamp for a different occasion, like a 50th anniversary.

Beautiful card, the white & gold along with the embossing is very elegant and matches the photo inspiration very well. Yes it's a crazy busy time of year, but fun :) Have a great weekend and enjoy the Season, Shirleyx

You captured the inspiration photo perfectly I think. Your brushed gold was very elegant & rich, and I liked it way better than if it had been the shiny gold. This is a very pretty image, and was wonderful on this rich card. You've used one of my fav SU EF's too. Glad you are making progress in whittling down your to-do. I got a few things accomplished today myself. For a change! TFS & Merry Christmas.
